Photo Comment

Sharing the old Heathrow Northside tarmac with BOAC white tail Canadair Argonauts,the SuperG was the last stretch Connie with the original wing design. One of these caused a few worried phone calls and got a mention in the London papers when it flew across SouthEast England trailing smoke from an engine oil leak, I saw it on final to Heathrow where it arrived safely.
