504 of 3,160
Delivered to BOAC on 23.4.64 and seen here on finals to 10L at LHR round about the time of the British Airways merger, this magnificent machine was painted in Gulf Air colours as A4O-VI in 10.75 but continued to be operated by BA on behalf of the Emir of Qatar. Became ZD493 on 10.9.82 and ferried from LHR to Brize Norton as BA9553E for spares use by the RAF. Slowly broken up from 1988 with fuselage used for fire practice; gone by 1994
