IN SERVICE AVRO TUDOR
The last day of October 1947 was an historic one for British South American Airways. The state-owned airline had kept faith with the Avro Tudor and was about to reap its reward, or so it appeared.
After several proving flights, BSAA was confident of the Tudor’s suitability for operations between the UK, the Caribbean and South America. One of them had left Heathrow for Jamaica via Prestwick, Bermuda, and Port of Spain, Trinidad on 23 July.
