Vickers 953C Merchantman
Brooklands (EGLB)
UK - England, May 29, 2004
Remark
Photographer
G-APEP (cn 719) A special occasion as Echo Papa taxies under her own power for the very last time. This is the final ever time that a Vanguard/Merchantman operates under its own power. A sad but momentous day for all the unsung heroes and volunteers that look after her...

Vickers 953C Merchantman
Brooklands (EGLB)
UK - England, February 25, 2006
Remark
Photographer
G-APEP (cn 719) This is the only surviving Vickers Vanguard in the world. Originally delivered in passenger configuration to BEA in 1961 and converted to Merchantman (cargo) specification in 1971. Retired in 1996 and returned to her birthplace here at Brooklands. Notice that she was relocated in the summer of 2004 after Mercedes-Benz built an office block on top of the historic Brooklands runway where she used to be displayed.
