I'll try my best.

1. They had three engines on the tail, like the 727.
2. I have no idea, I'm not even sure if any American carrier ever ordered any.
3. Probably a Canadian company.
4. I don't know...maybe Malev...
5. Reeve Aleutian and Air Bridge, I think.
6. The AN-28 was a small twin prop with its wings mounted above the windows, it looked like a Twin Otter. It had two vertical tails, each mounted at each end of the horizontal stabilizer.
7. North American Airlines.
8. I think it's an American airline, so it could be based in the United States.
9. I don't know, maybe because it was the only Viscont operated by a German carrier.
10. BEA used to operate the Vickers Vanguard and the Viscount.

These are some good questions! I don’t know the answer to most of them but I’ll try a few.

1. I believe the Trident had 3 engines.
5. US airlines operated the Electra in the year 2000? I’m dying to know the answer to that one.
6. North American was set up to “connect with El Al at JFK.” President George W. Bush’s campaign 757 was leased from North American.
10. Did BEA possibly operate the Lockheed Electra?

Well... Here goes:

1: 4
2: Northeast

4: CSA
5: Reeve Aleutian and Renown Aviation

7: North American
8: Algeria
9: It is the only Viscount still owned and used by its original customer airline (albeit now as a ground trainer) - i.e. only Viscount still in use that has had only one owner.
10: Douglas Dart Dakota (Dart powered DC-3), Vickers Viscount, Handley Page Herald, Vickers Vanguard and Vanguard Merchantman, Armstrong Whitworth Argosy, Bristol Britannia (lease from BOAC), Short Skyvan

Not much response, eh PhilB?

I guess that the majority of the readership is just too young to remember Britannias, Viscounts and B.E.A.!  Big grin

10.Which turbo prop types did BEA operate?

Andy, I can find no reference to BEA ever operating the Britannia. They certainly had one on non-revenue demo from BOAC with BOAC crew but for no more than a few flights and, from time to time, BKS Britannias flew the odd BEA service in place of a u/s aircraft or in times of industrial action.

No one mentioned the Rotodyne, in which BEA expressed an interest and had some demos. There are photos of the aircraft in flight in BEA colours but I can't find evidence that these were anything other than artist's airbrush illustrations.

Phil,

From "A history of the Bristol Britannia" by David Littlefield

G-AOVG

"During April and May of 1961, G-AOVG was leased to British European Airways for their European schedules. During this time she wore the familiar red squares with BEA on her cheatlines, both sides, but BOAC was kept on her upper fuselage"

I have e-mailed you a scan of a picture of this aircraft.

Andy

Thanks Andy,

None of the production lists I've seen have listed this. Even worse, I was at LHR twice in April 1961 and actually logged G-AOVG, but didn't notice the stickers. Can't remember seeing it on what is now Terminal 2, so probably logged it on take off.

Add ten bonus points!!

Best wishes,

Phil
