Stagecoach flies high to mark milestone

Stagecoach West bus drivers decided to mark the operator’s 25 years in business in their own special way.

They manoeuvred 10 buses into a position which might have baffled those on the ground, but from above spelt out its anniversary in years.

Bill McCartney, Stagecoach West depot transport manager, says: “This was a bit of fun and a challenge for the drivers and the drone pilot to get the buses in position and perfectly lined up in what were difficult weather conditions.

“But we felt it was important to celebrate 25 years in business and a quarter of a century serving the community.”
