Originally delivered to Trans-Canada Airlines as CF-TGQ in Jun 1955, and acquired by Air Inter on 6 Mar 1964. It was registered as F-BMCF on 14 Mar 1964 and served with the airline as such until withdrawn from use on 25 Jul 1975. The aircraft was then donated to the Institut Aéronautique Amaury de la Grange that same month for instructional use. The instructional use had ceased by the mid 1980s, and in about 1987 the aircraft was restored in full Air Inter colours and moved the the institute's entrance to serve as a gate guard, as seen here.
This Viscount was originally delivered to BEA in July 1858 and eventually ended its days as 9Q-CDN with Global Airways. In 2004 the frame was stored at N'djili International (FIH), Kinshasa and was eventually scrapped.
Owned by Field Aircraft Services ex Ghana Airways 9G-AAW. It went to Skyline Sweden August 1976 as SE-FOZ. Crashed and w/o on approach to Stockholm Bromma 15 January 1977 due to icing. This was caused by the number 2 and number 3 engines running too long at reduced power (during the descent) and rendering the temperature of the anti ice system too low to be effective.
Originally planned for Cubana as CU-T624 Type 818 but not taken up. This aircraft had a long and illustrious history before crashing at Munro Bloomington Indiana as N923RC with Ray Charles Enterprises Inc. None of the 28 passengers onboard suffered serious injuries. The remains went to Go Group at Tucson for spares.
