    Argonaut, I agree with you, times have certainly changed. Some would argue that our part in the Airbus product is something we should be proud of, and I am, but it's really not comparable with the likes of Comets, Concords, Vulcans and Lightnings, and to think, we built them all on our own Now that's something I'm really proud of
    Mmm...don't forget Concorde was joint Anglo-French and if we hadn't been locked into a treaty to build it it would had been dumped....it cost both Governments a LOT of money

    similar to summer charter days at Ringway in the early 70s when the Dan-air comets and Court 1-11s would overshadow the odd Britannia 737

    Oops, yes sorry about that, forgot that was French involvement. Apologies to any French viewers

    Lovely photos nicely edited with some space around the aircraft, Frank/teddymax.....some of the best shots of British airliners in the 60s/70s have come from Germany in recent years from Ralf Manteufel and Peter Seefeld and now teddymax!

    Love the Fairey Surveys C-47 photo. I have been in the right seat of the far Dak whiskey Charlie at White Waltham.

    g-alwc remained in use by Clyde Surveys until the start of the 1980s but g-amca was gone by the late 1970s, replaced by a queen air. There was a third C-47 that Fairey had in the mid to late 1960s which had a long pointed nose cone.

    Any other photos from White Waltham on that day?

    Hi Sarah, yes, quite a few WW pics in my albums and on slides. It's just a matter of waiting for me to copy them! Most are of light stuff from the other side of the airfield though. I used to cycle to WW when I was at school, when there was always interesting stuff there such as Comper Swift G-ABUS, a Luton Minor and 2 Fairchild Argus with the Warner Scarab radials. Faireys were busy with Gannets and there were usually 2 or 3 parked outside their hangars, though I never saw any fly. Later, the Rotodyne could be regularly seen, sometimes making an awful din! Happy days... There were supposed to be one or more Balliols on the RAF side, but I never saw them either.

    First class photos there teddymax, some really interesting items. I couldn't match the quality of photos, however I attach photo of C-74 Globemaster 1. When I first saw this aircraft at Heathrow in 1963 I didn't know what it was, was it a DC-7 on steroids ! They only lasted a very short time in civil service.

    The BOAC Viscount were not anything to do with the runway at Manchester as the pic in the Flicker links says

    Prestwick was a gateway for Transatlantic flight. The two Viscounts were Cambrian operated for BOAC in their livery as feeders to Prestwick from Glasgow and Edinburgh.

    In those days Transatlantics could only be operated from gateway airports so flight originating in Glasgow or Edinburgh had to stop at Prestwick an expensive sector so the Viscounts were used.

    Still a part of the active Cambrian fleet, they did ocassionally appear on other routes as back ups.

    They may well have done work from Manchester, but that was not the reason for their being.

    The Douglas C-74 Globemaster pictured above was famously used in the opening sequences of the film "The Italian Job" at Milan where it had been grounded.

    Always struck me as having a bit of a Chinese look about it.

    Only 14 were built and one of those was converted into the prototype of the more successful double deck C-124 Globemaster II

    Indeed Douglas marketed a civil C-74 version at the end of WWII as the first DC-7 and I think Pan Am expressed an interest but none were built.

    Yes, it looked really good in CAAC colours, pity it did not survive, I think it was burnt out in Turin after it's film career.
