Spantax is a name from Spain's aviation past. In a Bulletin feature in April, it was in fact described as having provided "one of the more fabulous if disastrous stories of Spanish aviation". Just one example of this was when its co-founder, Rodolfo Bay Wright, was piloting German journalists to Hamburg in a Convair 990 to demonstrate the plane's safety. "On landing, he managed to stop the plane just before it would have gone into an office building. If this wasn't bad enough, there was the small matter of having landed at the wrong airport."
