Lovely aircraft the Super 60. Amazing that they appear to have P & W fans and were never re-engined with CFM's. Last summer I was lucky enough to see an ACE Super 60 touch down at Luton from close to the runway. Wonderful sight of the old classic bird as it flared right in front of me. Full reverse from the old P & W's to get stopped on the 2100m runway and I was transported back to the late 1960's again.
