Some great shots of this machine can be found elsewhere online, but here she is at one stage of her dismemberment. This, the penultimate Britannia built, was delivered originally to Canadian Pacific in 1959. The once-proud ex-Eagle bird was to have become HB-ITF. Glad I talked my dad into diverting there all those years ago...
