216 Sqn Comet transports 1st PM of Bangladesh
 
Long shot but anyone help with the tail number of the 216 Squadron Comet that carried the 1st Prime Minister of Bangladesh, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, from the
United Kingdom to India 10th Jan 1972?.

The Operations Record book for this period not digitalised yet and obviously Kew not open.

Thank You

The following article cites it was the British Prime Ministers aircraft, would that narrow the option? There is video I've found of the aircraft arriving in both India and Bangladesh but not showing the serials on the rear end.
