    2 old rare Photos - S6 1929 AWA G-AOZZ

    Old aviation images turn up mixed up in all sorts of photo collections
    These are the 3 best I found this past few days :
    AW Argosy G-AOZZ closest the camera , must be at LHR sometime 1962-64 before BEA upgraded their runway buses

    Love these, thanks for posting. The "ghosting" effect of the people and the long exposure in the S6 picture is quite atmospheric!
    Armchair enthusiast, but also a fan of sofas and recliners.

      Under wing roundels. Not seen those before.

        They are not roundels under the wing, but the racing number '2'.
