This was one of three Heron aircraft operated by B.E.A. based at Glasgow Renfrew Airport. It was used on scheduled services to the Scottish Islands and also for ambulance flights. Seen here in the second colour scheme to be worn by the type. Also note the strange nose undercarriage wheel arrangement, designed not to throw salt water and sand into the engines by keeping the spray down. This was necessary for operations from the beach airport at Barra.
