D-FMVS Taxiing in after its display at Flying Legends 2011. The paint scheme is inaccurate. The emblem on the nose denotes I./JG 27 Afrika and it carries the chevrons of the Geschwaderkommodore under Luftflotte Reich. The victory markings on the rudder are of Oberst Hermann Graf who finished the war with 212 victories, but did not serve in JG 27. (more of D-FMVS)

G-ASGC No one could fail to glance at one of these beauties on the apron in its heyday. That shade of BOAC dark blue looked all the more alluring under lights at night. From a few flights on the VC10, I remember the cabin was quiet in flight, more so towards the front. It was the epitome of comfort and elegance back in the day. This Speedbird first flew in Jan. 1965 and had an innings with BA till April 1980, when she was withdrawn from use and displayed at Duxford. (more of G-ASGC)

G-ALWF RMA Sir John Franklin, the world's oldest surviving Viscount on display at Duxford. It was a pleasure to see this type again, once a common sight with Indian Airlines. They had oval doors, were a bit noisy in flight and great sight on the apron when starting up the four Rolls Royce Dart turboprops. A real classic! BEA operated 77 of the type at its peak.
