Remark Photographer
G-APEK (cn 714) It's August, 1964 and it looks like evey seat is occupied on this 85-minute flight from LHR to GLA. BEA's 135-passenger 953s were all Y configured and this mid-cabin seated 77. A view out of the big 26 by 19 inch windows revealed red painted wings. Listen carefully, maybe you can even hear the Beatles singing "A Hard Day's Night" over the thrum of those big 17-foot props.

Nice photo - nice journey back in time! Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful photo! One thing that I noticed right away is the small amount of "stuff" in the overhead rack. Compare that to today, where we travel with massive amounts of e-toys, clothing, cameras, etc, and now look at the small amount of carry-ons that these folks had.

Not sure about "A Hard Day's Night....but when I listen carefully I can hear the Beatles singing "Back In The USSR".

I flew on BEA Vanguards from LHR to JER a couple of times and I think the rear cabin behind the rear door was first class if my memort serves me well.
