    "...Handley Page H.P. 42..." Yep. Specifically 'Hanno". Don't like using Wikipedia as a source, but they do have pictures. About halfway down.

    I assume that you realise that "HANNO" is the name of this particular aircraft.

    Heathrow has changed a bit guys, I certainly didn't get an SMLE wielding Bedouin welcoming committee the last time I flew in. Also note the lack of coffee bars and ample parking...

    Also note the lack of hi viz jackets, hardhats and harness on the engineers, a shocking lack of health and safety.

    John,
    First class then, was simply......you were in front of the engines ha ha!! Typical Britishicon Airways!
    Interesting to see the Royal Naval Ensign flying ex RN pilot perhaps or more behind the image than meets the eye!!
