A familiar part of the Heathrow maintenance area scenery in the 70s connected to its tuba-like mufflers, moved out onto the field in 1980 as fire practice trainer and broken up after the mid-Eighties. Replaced by a Trident in the same spot by 09L. Reg'd to de Havilland 5.57 and to BOAC 10.59; to Mexicana late 1965 becoming XA-NAB and returned to BOAC 12.69
