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 GH was used by BOAC/BA for 16 years, before being withdrawn in 1981; then used by the RAF for spares, until finally broken up in 1987.
