Silver City Airways
Bristol 170 Freighter Mk32
Lydd (LYX / EGMD)
UK - England, March 25, 1962
Remark
Photographer
G-AMWB (cn 13127) Silver City's B170 Mk32s carried up to three cars and fourteen passengers plus a flight attendant. Lydd (then also known as Ferryfield) was purpose built for the airline. The main destination was Le Touquet. Flights also operated to Ostend, Calais and (in the summer) Deauville. During July and August in the early 1960s there were up to 120 air-ferry movements daily. Silver City Airways became part of British United Airways (BUA) in January 1963 and was renamed British United Air Ferries (BUAF).

Skyways Cargo Airline
Fairchild Hiller FH-227B(LCD)
Lydd (LYX / EGMD)
UK - England, April 1980
Remark
Photographer
G-SKYB (cn 539) At her home base on the Kentish coast, this was one of a trio of the Friendship derivative briefly operated by Skyways before they went out of business later that year. New with the evocative Mohawk Airlines as N7817M in 4.67 and sold by Allegheny to Wien in 5.74. After gaining the cargo door she came to England in 8.78, passing on to TABA following Skyways' demise as PT-LBG. Very derelict at Belém by 2004

Court Line
Lockheed L-1011-385-1 TriStar 1
London - Gatwick (LGW / EGKK)
UK - England, April 1974
Remark
Photographer
G-BAAB (cn 193K-1032) The donkey seems little bothered by the pink monster rushing past, but four months later Court Line was gone. The aircraft followed her orange sister-ship back to Lockheed and eventually on to Cathay Pacific in 10.77 as VR-HHW. After operation by Caribbean Winds as V2-LEM in 1996, she was purchased by Air Transat and flew as C-GTSI till scrapped in 2000 by Arizona Aircraft Support

London - Heathrow (LHR / EGLL)
UK - England, September 1972
Remark
Photographer
G-AOYL (cn 261) Another shot from the days when 10L/28R was bordered by little more than a low wooden fence.

Merged back into BA 4.74 and sold along with many other sister-ships to BAF in 1.84 as "Viscount Churchill". Wfu 1987 and b/u 2.93 (remains to Hanningfield Metals)

BEA - British European Airways
Vickers 951 Vanguard
London - Heathrow (LHR / EGLL)
UK - England, August 31, 1962
Remark
Photographer
G-APEF (cn 709) Typical view from the Queens Building, this time in colour to show the colours of the time. Film was Agfa Colour negative film, which is rather grainy. No matter how you tried to photograph an aircraft on a stand close to the building, you nearly always got the buildings or ground equipment in the foreground and the pole with the stand number in front of you.

BEA - British European Airways Channel Islands
Vickers 802 Viscount
Manchester - International (Ringway) (MAN / EGCC)
UK - England, August 1972
Remark
Photographer
G-AOHT (cn 168) A busy pier on a dull day at MAN with five classic types and an excellent opportunity to compare the noses of the Caravelle and Comet. It is often mentioned that Sud-Est used the Comet nose when designing the SE.210. Indeed there was co-operation leading to the noses of the first two prototypes being direct copies and those thereafter very similar including cockpit layout.
