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?

1) 4 engines (one on top of the tail)
2) Northeast
3) Canadian Pacific and Aeronaves de Mexico
4) CSA
5) Reeve Aleutian and ...hmm.. maybe Zantop?
6) The AN28 had it's first flight in 1972 and is a twin turboprop with a "double tail", serving as a light commuter. There was also a license production in Poland with P&W canada engines, called the "Skytruck".
It was originally aimed to replace the AN-2
7) North American Airlines, B757 operator
8) Algeria
9) Only Viscount in new Lufthansa colors, parked at FRA
10) Viscount, Vanguard, Argosy

Best regards,

Well... Here goes:

1: 4
2: Northeast
3: Canadian Pacific (assume Cubana and Aeronaves del Mexico excluded on the basis of these airlines being from Central rather than North America?)
4: CSA
5: Reeve Aleutian and Renown Aviation
6: Small, high wing, twin engine commuter, two vertical stabs mounted on the end of the horizonal tailplanes
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

Slightly better response. Congrats to Andy for getting closest to the correct answers, honourable mention to Patroni.

1. How many engines had all Trident 3s when built?
FOUR 3xRR SPEY, 1xRB162

2. Which US airline ordered the Bristol Britannia.
NORTHEAST

3 Which North American continent airlines operated the Bristol Britannia?
TAKING THE GEOGRAPHERS' DEFINITION OF NORTH AMERICA - CANADIAN PACIFIC AND AERONAVES DE MEXICO

4. Which East European airline operated the Bristol Britannia?
CSA

5. Which two US airlines were operating passenger L-188 Electras in 2000.
REEVE ALEUTIAN AND RENOWN

6. Give a brief description of the AN-28
HIGH WING, TWIN TURBOPROP 15/17 SEAT MONOPLANE WITH TWIN TAIL AND FIXED UNDERCARRIAGE

7. Which airline was set up "to connect with El Al at JFK"?
NORTH AMERICAN

8. In which country is Khalifa Airlines based?
ALGERIA

9. Why is Viscount D-ANAF unique?
ONLY VISCOUNT STILL "IN SERVICE" WITH ITS ORIGINAL OWNER. NOW USED AS A GROUND TRAINER AT FRA, IN FULL LATEST LH COLOURS WITH THE ADDITION OF THE WORD "TRAINING" TO THE TITLES

10.Which turbo prop types did BEA operate?
DC3 PIONAIR LEOAPARD CARGO, VISCOUNT, HERALD, VANGUARD/MERCHANTMAN, ARGOSY, SKYVAN

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
