Right Colours Wrong Name

Welcome, today you can choose your own mode of transport and camera, as we are looking at aircraft seen at Luton during the 1970's with unusual titles or colours when leased to other airlines.

Its december 1975  lousy day as usual when something unsual happens, and          Aer Lingus Boeing 737 EI-ASK arrives in Air Malta colours.

British Midland Viscount 800 G-AZLT  with Cyprus Airways titles. This would be taken just after the Greek Turkish war over Cyprus when Nicosia was captured by the Turks so Larnaca was hastily made into the southern airport with a short runway and a few porta cabins, and BMA was subcontacted to operate Cyprus Airways services.

Another lousy day as Britannia Airways Boeing 737 G-BAZG prepares to depart on lease to Yemen Airways.

Seaboard World's DC8 N804SW on lease to IAS.

And finally the ultimate mixture, Eagle Air Iceland's Boeing 720 TF-VLC in Air Malta colours with Britannia Airways titles.

And so we say goodbye to Roger and Reggie till next time.
