East African had five Supers, never chartered or borrowed, so I don’t know how that came about. See previous post no. 26 for their Comet useage. They did charter more than one Britannia, but only one at a time. They were left in BOAC livery with the Speedbird on the tail changed to the Flying Lion, and the fuselage titles changed to ‘EAAC’ just by changing the ‘BO’.
