Didn't see it and I can't recall the series but looking at the Viscount, I would guess it was 'Invicta' airlines with the 'IN' painted out which probably means Manston.

Several photos here of Viscount G-AOCB wearing "Victa" titles, taken at Blackbushe during filming (scroll down to October 1968).

The other aircraft involved, a Bristol Superfreighter seemingly was painted in the BUA later colour scheme (white with blue and beige stripes), but obviously any lettering obscured. I’m happy to be corrected though, especially as the film was grainy black and white!
