Yes! pretty much the quickest service around. High winds can be a problem - they phoned me once to apologise because "The Plane" couldn't operate in high winds and it my delivery might be a day late. Seems they fly them from I.O.M to a depot here somewhere.

Royal mail have 18 depots, Aberdeen, Belfast, Benbecula, Bournemouth, Bristol, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Exeter, Glasgow, Guernsey, Inverness, Kinloss, Isle of Man, Jersey, Kirkwall, Newcastle, Stansted, Stornoway and Sumburgh airports.

Stuff from IoM will,  I expect, fly to East Midlands, the post offices main  depot, be sorted there,  then flown on to your nearest airport on the list, then distributed by conventional means.

This system is of course, part of the reason for the end travelling post offices.

If you look at the list coastal Norfolk and Cape  Wrath,  are probably the furthest from air delivery,  but I could still get stuff from trackshack in under 24hours.

i ordered some points on the 28th dec in the early afternoon

the points arrived at 12:20 today (on 29th dec)

less than 24 hours...

now that is fast service... especially as they have to fly it over to the mainland from iom!

Another happy (new) customer of Track Shack here. Large order of Peco track and other bits and bobs placed late on Saturday night but still arrived here on Tuesday. Excellent service and price all round.
