    "VS of plane - it is called 'Halcyon Days'" - the aircraft is a BAC 111, Reg. No. G-AXMK, in the livery of the "Court Line" charter airline.

  2. zayerman says

    The yellow and orange "Halcyon Days" aircraft was a Lockheed L1011 "Tristar". You also see the pink / magenta coloured Tristar that was called "Halcyon Breeze". Both of which were returned to Lockheed and later bought by Cathy Pacific after Court Line went bust in Aug'74.
