G-AIVI  Vickers 610 Viking 1B                     (c/n  222)


                                  The caption on this Vickers image indicates that it is "Victor" which is seen here on turnaround
                                  at Northolt in 1948.   That beimg the case, this aircraft would have been G-AIVI.   It appears to
                                  be being refueled from an RAF bowser.  The picnic like atmosphere in this shot is not staged.  On
                                  nice days the crews were often seen relaxing on the grass beside the apron.   This aircraft was sold
                                  in Germany in 1955 as D-ABEL.
