The traffic lights may not be on but it was certainly enough to stop me! This airframe faced a rather uncertain future as it went down the production line in 1958, being earmarked successively for BOAC, Capital and Northeast; ntu by all three. To Air Charter as G-ANCE, then BUA and Lloyd, joining Aer Turas in May 1974. Wfu Dublin 1979 and b/u 1981
