'Superb' by name, superb by nature. One of my favourite aircraft, now preserved just a couple of miles from where I then lived - great memories of some rides LHR-BRU around the time of this shot, then of seeing her arrive on the shortened runway at Brooklands for the museum on 17.10.96 (lamp posts were temporarily removed specially from the road outside) - the last ever flight of a Vanguard

I was lucky enough to get a couple of memorable rides up front in sister-ship "Superb" before she was retired to Brooklands, where the nose section of G-APEJ is also preserved. The nose of this aircraft 'Echo Sierra' is preserved at East Midlands

Delivered to Northwest as N129US in 12.59 and later N777DP, PT-DZK, N8LG and N360Q; leased by TPI to ABC in 6.89 and was the only Electra ever to carry these full colours - painted shortly before this photo and boy didn't she look smart.
