Photo Comment

This was the first production Viscount, delivered to BEA on 3 January 1953. It is making a courtesy visit to Ringway, when I was allowed to walk out onto the main apron for this photo which shows the 1939-built Hangar No.6 in the background. The aircraft crashed on finals to Ringway on 14 March 1957 - see other photo.
