The long nosed Mk32 version of the B170 carried up to three cars with seats for fourteen passengers and a flight attendant in the rear cabin. In January 1963, Silver City Airways and Channel Air Bridge merged to become British United Air Ferries (BUAF). This former Silver City aircraft wears the new colour scheme. The loading ramp and passenger steps await a repaint. In the background is F-BKBD of French partner Compagnie Air Transport.

A very realistic photo - typical weather! A pity however that this aircraft is referred to only by numbers and not by its name - "City of Leicester". I flew in it at least twice as a small child, from Le Touquet to Lydd both times. The 2nd time may have been one of its last flights, in 1969, as it was not in evidence when I flew in 1970. I have fonder memories of "City of Aberdeen" but never mind that.
