G-AGNV Avro 685 York C.I
Here's a nice Jennifer Gradidge study
of a BOAC York towards the end of its career with the air-
line (it later flew with Skyways). Taken at London Airport in the
early 1950s, it has been white
topped in the
mode of the day. Note Blue Ensign and BOAC flags emanating
from the cockpit.
individual aircraft name of G-AGNV was "Marville". BOAC's Yorks
were used mainly
the African service (which replaced the flying boats) from London to
Cairo, Nairobi and Durban,
on West African routes to Lagos, etc. This particular aircraft
has been preserved in the
Aerospace Museum at RAF Cosford.
