Vickers Viscount 701 G-AMOG

Taken on 24 September 2003 at RAF Cosford, where it was at that time part of the BA Collection, but in 2006 this aircraft was dismantled and taken to East Fortune, near Edinburgh, where I photographed the fuselage after its arrival there. Other, less fortunate, aircraft in the BA Collection were broken up at Cosford.
Viscount G-AMOG was the seventh of the original production of the 701 series and was delivered to British European Airways on March 27, 1953, with the name "Sir Robert Falcon Scott". It was sold to Cambrian Airways in February 1963, who leased it to British Overseas Airways Corporation in March 1972. On April 1, 1974, BAE merged with BOAC to form British Airways, and G-AMOG flew for another two years in the new livery, before making its final flight to Cosford in 1976. After 30 years in the open , it was moved to the Scottish Museum of Flight at East Fortune, near Edinburgh in 2006.
