BOAC
Vickers VC10 Srs1101
Unknown
International Airspace, Late 1960's
Remark
Photographer
G-ARV* Anticipating the imminent arrival of the widebody jets, around 1968 BOAC installed overhead lockers on their VC10 and 707 fleets. The colourful environment compares well to today's blizzard-white airliner interiors. Passengers enjoyed the luxury of individual adjustable air vents, no doubt to help blow away the cigarette smoke of their fellow travellers. The cabin crew's uniforms hark back to a time when even flying economy was glamorous. A hushed cabin resulted from the rear mounted R-R Conways.

BOAC
Vickers Super VC10 Srs1151
New York - John F. Kennedy International (Idlewild) (JFK / KJFK)
USA - New York, Late 1960's
Remark
Photographer
G-ASGH (cn 858) A front row view of this BOAC Super VC10 as the ground crew ready her for another long haul flight out of JFK. A TWA Convair 880 taxis in to the gates in the distance. Note the gantry used to service the rear galley as a means of avoiding the two paired starboard RR 43D Conways. On the lower left, the flight engineer begins his pre-flight ground checks. GH was used by BOAC/BA for 16 years, before being withdrawn in 1981; then used by the RAF for spares, until finally broken up in 1987.

British Aircraft Corporation - BAC
BAC 111-410AQ One-Eleven
Auckland - International (AKL / NZAA)
New Zealand, January 29, 1966
Remark
Photographer
G-ASYE (cn 054) Held nearly 40 years ago, the opening of Auckland International Airport saw one of New Zealand's largest air displays. This BAC-111 was a company demonstrator from the UK and was here principally as NZ National Airways Corporation (NAC) were looking at using short/medium haul Jet passenger aircraft on the main trunk routes. NAC finally chose the Boeing 737-200 and the first three entered service in 1968.
