BAC Super 1-11 at Ringway Postcard
Old Postcards showing classic aircraft of the past.
Welcome to the Aircraft section of Classic Wheels, a new site for everyone interested in preserved vehicles and historic transport.
This part of Classic Wheels contains scans of original postcards with an aviation theme to them, dating from way back when the Wright Brothers took their
first tentative airborne hops, right through to Concorde, one of the few things we in the UK could be proud of (now sadly reduced to a silent relic in museums).
Please note that no postcard image on Classic Wheels is to be reproduced elsewhere, or directly linked to from other websites. I am not aware of any copyright
on these images but if any images are under copyright, please get in touch and I will
remove it, or credit it accordingly, asap.
Below is an original postcard, titled 'BAC Super 1-11 at Ringway'.
This is postcard # 16 in this collection of aviation cards.
To see the other old aircraft postcards, visit the image list here and check out the
other classic jets and prop planes of the past, in addition to this one of the BAC Super 1-11 at Ringway.
More Information on this BAC Super 1-11 at Ringway aeroplane postcard:
The postcard here probably dates to the late 1970s, and shows a BAC Super 1-11 G-AVMS I think parked up receiving some Esso Jet fuel. The background area, showing here some of the old Fairey hangars, is now home to the Cargo centre and various aircraft engineering facilities. The British Airways 1-11 seen here, and the 2 BA Vickers VC10 airliners behind, are on the then-new Pier C.
