As a matter of curiosity, I'm trying to figure out what type of aircraft I was on as a 9-month old child when my parents and I immigrated to Canada. Does anyone have any idea what type of aircraft BEA would have operated between Belfast and Prestwick in 1970? I assume AC used the DC-8 between Prestwick and YYZ. Did they use other aircraft? Anyone with particular knowledge is welcome to respond. Hell, even educated guesses would be nice.

Round about 1974/1975 BOAC had chartered 2 Viscount aircraft from BEA to operate PIKBFSPIK and PIKEDIABZEDIPIK in connection with the PIKJFK and PIKYULYYZ services the canadian flight was operated by a 707 which started in MAN
I think from looking back my records that the Viscounts were GAMOG and GAMON
