The Vanguard was 951/953, but that might well be the reason for the 810 not having a more significant number attached.

Just to be technically correct, BMA operated 700's and the 810 series Viscounts, but not the 'straight' 800, as BEA/BA, KLM etc operated.

If I remember rightly in the late 70's/early 80's, Aer Lingus usually scheduled a 1-11 on their Sunday LBA-Dublin slot, with the 737-200 operating the same several times mid-week.
The 1-11 certainly...

The 'humped back' 727 that Dan Air operated was indeed G-BMLP, but apparently the hump was an ADF aeriel/air-con ducting flairing, not a repair.

Was that the 727 that once threatened to make an appearance at LBA pre extension? There was a large press turnout, but apparently it diverted as the winds weren't favourable? Early 80's perhaps.

Not convinced that's a Viscount on the right. The slopes of the nose don't look right, and I think it's too high off the ground.

On the left hand side of the 'bullet' as we look at it - looks like you can just make out an 'F' at the end. But I don't think G-ARVF was ever in Negus as got sold in the UAE?

The -420 series also had the 'old' style single nosewheel door, a la 707-120 / 720, which always struck me as odd, considering it was supposed to be a re-engined development of the -320.

Some 700 series - particularly the 700D's for the U.S. market had a similar radome to the 810.
