United at Gatwick - BAC 1-11


Three aircraft of the British United Airways fleet are seen at Gatwick in the 1960s. All come from the Vickers / British Aircraft Corporation stable of aircraft and celebrate the best in British commercial aviation of the era. The aircraft are an early 200 Series BAC One Eleven with a Vickers Viscount 800 series coming in to land, along with a  Vickers VC10 ‘1103 series The vehicles are a Shell / BP Foden tanker, a custom Morris Mini and a British United Morris Minor van. All together this ‘made in Britain’ scene very much encapsulates what London Gatwick would have looked like in 1966.
