Another Heathrow view

I came across this photo by chance - a one-off among my father's black and white negatives. It's my brother's birthday today, and I was looking for some early photos to send him, when I found this - of interest to aviation historians - a pair of BEA Trident jet airliners at Heathrow. Photographed from Queen's Building, dated June 1965, we see Trident 1 G-ARPC and behind it stands G-ARPJ.



Note the multitude of ground equipment, including a Commer baggage carrier that looks like it's been converted from a fire engine, and a number of Bedford Dormobile conversions. Click on photo to enlarge and you'll see a TWA Boeing 707 landing, and in the distance an Airspeed Ambassador with its distinctive triple-finned tail.
