Flew with BOAC from new in 1958 until sold to Monarch Airlines in 1969. Scrapped at Luton (EGGW) in 1977. [The new decade was a novelty to us having never known anything but 195-something up until then. Doubtless McIntyre, being of the same age group, made a point of getting something on film to mark the occasion.]

About to grease it on is this 1956 built 'Seven Seas' smartly painted in a livery that really suits it (IMHO). Later it flew with Saturn Airways as N90773 from 1963 to 1969, after which it was scrapped.

Haltons were a dozen Halifax C.8 transport aircraft, converted to interim airliners for BOAC. The first was G-AHDU, ex PP310, christened Falkirk at Radlett on 18 July 1946. Later they were operated on the Berlin Airlift by Bond Air Services, transporting mostly fuel oil in their ventral cargo panniers. G-AHDU scrapped at Southend during 1950.
