On your next flight, imagine finding yourself at the door of a Vanguard after your short journey down the air bridge. BEA modified its Vanguards to use air bridges by the removal of the remaining fleet’s front folding airstairs. Of course, this omission necessitated the use of conventional truck stairs for front door traffic at more primitive airports. In this shot, dappled by a morning sun, the previous night’s snow slowly melts as G-APEA prepares for its first flight of the day.
