BOAC commenced its services to New York in
1946 with five ex USAAF C-69s. G-AHEJ
(named "Bristol") was the first and is
seen here in the early 1950s at London Airport, having
been newly white-topped. Photograph by Jennifer Gradidge.
It was sold to Capital Airlines in
N2740A. It went back to the UK in 1961 to Falcon
Airways and reverted
(naturally) to being G-AHEJ again. It was broken up in 1962.
