[COLUMN] 1985-1989 What if... The Virgin Viscount failed to fly?

Postby Guido » 10 Jun 2017, 17:12

For several reasons Virgin dit not operate some of her flights with their own Viscount. Several other Viscount operated the flight, as wel Short 360's, a Herald Page HP7, F27, HS-748's, BAC-1-11's, a B727 ( when I wasn't there ), and a B737. And who knows much more as I was not at the airport all time.
Well...as most of the Viscount's were pictured with the wrong cam I put those Viscount's all together:

Ofcourse British Air Ferries was the main operator in this episode. The only V806 of BAF with the old titels I captured was this G-AOYN:

Guernsey Air leased the G-AOYG during that period from BAF in full livery. Later this Viscount became Virgin's main V806.

BAF Viscount G-AOYI with the new titels.

HOT Air V806 G-BAPF was the hottest Viscount who came in on a Virgin flight I believe.

I will show some other operators in some of the oncoming episodes.
