Photo Comment

Just a month after acquisition from BA, this Viscount was contracted out to Oasis Oil (note Libyan flag on rear fuselage). The basic scheme is the very early version used by BAF complete with the yellow cockpit coaming which didn't last long at all. Last used in the UK as G-OPFI by Parcelforce, she was exported to Africa in 8.99 as 3D-PFI, changing hands under the marks 5V-TTP, TU-VAB, back to 3D-PFI and ending up as 9Q-COD in 7.07. Stored at Lubumbashi, Congo, in potentially flyable condition but sadly scrapped 2011
