In a scene of the movie Kingsman: The Secret Service the young aspiring agents have to skydive from an airplane. I didn't recognise it: which airplane is it (assuming it actually exists)?
Indeed, this is a Skyvan. It was built in Belfast at the Short Brothers facility, near to the then RAF Sydenham - now George Best Airport. My father worked for Shorts as a senior design engineer. In the late 1960s I was able to visit the assembly floor. I was aged nine or ten. I saw part-completed early variant Skyvans. from time to time, I saw the finished planes over Belfast Lough as they were subjected to test flights.
