Ray Valois sent us this photo of an unusual snafu at C&SS YUL from 1964.

Norman Hogwood, in New Zealand, has sent this item he received from his weekly blog -

tmb cpa britannia cf czcCivil registered Bristol Britannia airliners were not a common sight in New Zealand. However the photo here, provided by Alan Bowman, shows the Canadian Pacific Britannia 314 CF-CZC c/n 13395 (and ship number 523 - on nose wheel door) at Christchurch International Airport on an unknown date. I believe one flew the Queen Mother down from Fiji in 1958 - could this be it? But I suspect this shot is later - more like March 1964!

CF-CZC was built in 1958 and named "Empress of Tokyo" and was fleet number 523. It became G-ATLE with Transglobe Airways Ltd at Gatwick from 30-11-1965 and moved to L.A.S. (London) Ltd from 30-12-1969. I believe it was withdrawn from use in March 1970 and later broken up.

(This aircraft was delivered to CPA May 30th., 1958 and also carried the title “Empress of Madrid” at one time. – eds)
