Taken early evening with a low sun. Colour scheme was a cream (very light yellow) roof and tailplane with fuselage stripe. Shortly afterwards this was changed, the fuselage stripe was removed and the cream colours extended below the fuselage stripe line. The roof titles became "Fred Olsen Line" in very pale blue which wasn't good for photography. At the time Fred Olsen had an office at Newcastle Airport and all movements were in support of their shipping line, which had a large presence on the River Tyne.
