VP-TBB (1)  Vickers 657 Viking  1                  (c/n  137)


                                        VP-TBB was one of the second batch of Vikings acquired by BWIA from BEA in 1950, and
                                        allotted the registration originally reserved for the non-starting Sealand.  At that time most of the
                                        colonial airlines became subsidiaries of BOAC and that is reflected in their liveries. Other examples
                                        of this BOAC-ization are Bahamas Airways, Central African Airways and Hong Kong Airways,
                                        although there are many more. Most airliners were given names.  This one was "RMA "Bahamas".
                                        It returned to the UK as G-AHPE and was broken up for spares at Southend in 1961.
