In 1962, Silver City was taken over by Air Holdings, parent of British United Airways which operated similar services to the continent from Rochford Airport in Essex. By the end of 1962, all Silver City aircraft were either in British United colours or had been retired,
The company was named after a nickname of the town of Broken Hill, Australia, where one of the airline\'s owners (the Zinc Corporation) operated mines. Silver City was first based at Langley Aerodrome, but moved to Blackbushe Airport in 1947 when Langley was forced to close due to the expansion of Heathrow Airport.
