BEA had a contract with Luqa Airport to hold training flights for its Vanguards. G-APES had four sessions of training flights there in the 1960s, and also was a frequent visitor to Luqa during regular scheduled BEA passenger services. G-APES flew for BEA from 1962 - 70, then was converted to a Merchantman. It soldiered on until retirement and salvage by Hunting Cargo Airlines on 4 Feb 95, leaving G-APEP as the last airworthy Vanguard.
