Caledonian Airways

Caledonian Airways was a British charter airline. It was a British Airways subsidiary, formerly known as British Airtours. The name 'Caledonian Airways' was adopted after the takeover by BA of British Caledonian Airways in 1988. In 1995 BA sold the airline to UK tour operator Inspirations, after which the airline flew for a short time as Peach Air. Later, in 2000, the airline was merged with another charter airline, Flying Colours, and the result was named JMC Air, today's Thomas Cook.

The Caledonian fleet consisted mainly of widebody aircraft like the Lockheed TriStar, Boeing 747, Airbus A300 and McDonnell Douglas DC-10. The airline operated six DC-10s, some of them taken over by British Airways from the fleet of British Caledonian. The aircraft on the picture, however, G-GOKT, came from Philippine Airlines in 1996.
