British European Airways Corporation (BEA)
G-AMOG *
July 1953

Delivered new to British European Airways (BEA) named 'R M A Robert Falcon Scott'. Taken at an unknown location circa July 1953.

Note the 'cutlass' propeller blades which were gradually phased out in favour of the more symmetrical 'needle' blade shape.

This often coincided with the upgrade of the Dart RDa3 engine from Mark 505 to Mark 506 standard, but not in all cases.

In the foreground is a 'MUREX' ground power unit which supplied a high amperage 28 volt DC current to the aircraft to energise the 12 horsepower ROTAX starter motor fitted to each Dart engine.

British European Airways Corporation (BEA)
G-AMOG *
October 1954

Delivered new to British European Airways (BEA) named 'R M A Robert Falcon Scott'. The port undercarriage leg collapsed during an emergency landing at Ciampino Airport, Rome, Italy where it was returning due to technical problems with the undercarriage shortly after take-off 24 October 1954.

This is a press cutting hence the poor quality but better than nothing.

Note the 'cutlass' type propeller blades and the early Decca 'sharks fin' navigation aerial on the tail.

British European Airways Corporation (BEA)

April 1955

Delivered new to British European Airways (BEA) named 'R M A Robert Falcon Scott'. Taken at London Airport (Heathrow), Middlesex, England in April 1955 on a stand in front of the Europa Terminal and Queen's Building.

Note the heavily oil stained concrete from the piston engine era.

The Dart was a very dry engine by comparison, which pleased both the ground engineers and the airport authorities.

Also note the early Decca 'sharks fin' navigation aerial on the tail.

G-AMOG *
May 1962

Delivered new to British European Airways (BEA) and now un-named. Taken at Jersey Airport, Channel Islands circa May 1962 and shows the Jersey BEA Silver Wings football team.

Some of the names in the top row are (l to r) 1 Stan Blondell, 4 Len Quemard, 6 Louis Le Roche, 7 Alan Voak, 8 Sid Kerry, 10 Harry Wellock(?). 2nd row 1 Roger Smith, 4 Nelson Gauvry, 5 Brian ?. 3rd row 2 Bobby Parker, 3 Johnny Harrison 5 Lionel Norman. BEA had a successful team in the local leagues until the late 1960s with several cups on show.

The teams used to travel all over Europe playing against other airline teams, no doubt flying in the Viscount!

Can anyone give us a correct date and fill in the missing names?
