Captured immediately after her restoration including a complete repaint - the world's only surviving Hermes looks gorgeous in her pristine BOAC livery. The Hermes was the first purpose-built pressurised airliner built in Britain after the end of World War Two. Built in 1950 and nicknamed 'Horsa' this Hermes operated from London to West and South Africa from 1950 to 1953. The restoration is superb, with every panel and rivet now pristine. Soon to be moved inside AirSpace, so get your photos quick!
