During this period two Super Freighters were painted in Sabena colours to operate a pooled route between Southend and Ostend. From time to time one of the Super Freighters was configured to a 60 seater to provide additional passenger capacity on the route. During 1962 owner Channel Air Bridge at Southend and Silver City at Lydd worked in close association with each other and finally merged into what became British United Air Ferries on 1st January 1963. This is the last Bristol 170 built.
