There are 11 aircraft altogether, six operating on the North Atlantic route and five purchased from Aer Lingus for general working with our good friends from Australia. Surely the correct thing to do, when there are 11 aircraft of similar type, is to maintain them at the same base. These aircraft are being maintained at Filton. All that the Western division does for the Eastern division is to maintain and crew aircraft, and hand them over for operating.
