Just about to depart Southend for Cardiff-Rhoose and its new owners, Cambrian Airways who re-registered it G-BBMG. Channel Airways had ceased trading in February 1972 and this may be the last fight of an aircraft in their livery. Cambrian was absorbed into British Airways. To Birmingham European/Maersk Air; sold to Nationwide as ZS-OAH in April 1997. WFU at Lanseria in 2003 and broken up late 2005.

Interior of the forward fuselage section of G-ATVE which was donated to the museum on 8th September 1972 when the aeroplane was scrapped. Departed to Germany after the museum closed in May 1983. Note, some records and publications refer to this fuselage section as G-AVHE but it is clearly G-ATVE by the registration which was painted on both control columns.

Interior of the forward fuselage section of G-ATVE which was donated to the museum on 8th September 1972 when the aeroplane was scrapped. Departed to Germany after the museum closed in May 1983. Note, some records and publications refer to this fuselage section as G-AVHE but it is clearly G-ATVE by the registration which was painted on both control columns.

Had been moved to the scrapping area at Southend on 14th August 1972 and would be broken up by early September. The nose section was displayed in the Historic Aircraft Museum at Southend in BMA colours. After the museum closed in 1983 it moved to Düsseldorf where it was exhibited for a couple of years on the former observation deck. It later went to Stuttgart and Seifertshofen, and by 2016 it was exhibited in Bad Honnef. It was still there by 2022.
