Offloading passenger on the platform at Eelde. This Herald unfortunately didn't end its life well, as it taxied into a lamp post at Bournemouth in April 1997. With the wing damage too expensive to repair, the aircraft was written off. The cockpit section was preserved and resides at the Highland Aviation Museum in Inverness.
The history on this aircraft would fill an encyclopedia! It was originally N727PA with Pan Am. Whilst owned by British Midland it was leased out to numerous airlines often on short term periods. Kuwait Airways leased it on three separate occasions, this being photographed at the end of the third time from Jan 77 to Aug 77. It eventually met its fate when it was damaged by fire on landing at Bogota (Colombia) 20 Dec 80 as HK-2410X with Aerotal.
