This Viking made a safe landing at Northolt on 13 April 1950 after an 'infernal machine' (bomb) exploded in the toilet. The aircraft, Vigilant, was repaired. Reconfigured to 'Admiral class' aircraft Lord Hawke at Prestwick in late 1952 and the photo seems to have been taken there and then, but confirmation is sought. To Eagle Aviation in April 1955. Withdrawn in 1961. Photo from: British European Airways
