New Route

RF

RF538 is seen laying over at the undeveloped central area of Heathrow - when it was still known as London Airport; the picture was taken before 23 Jan 62 when the RF went for overhaul. A Vickers Viscount - apparently not BEA - graces the background and the cargo sheds then located on the north side are also visible. The Duple Vega-bodied KLM coach was probably one of those built with full-height rear luggage accommodation for the Knightsbridge to London Airport service and operated for KLM by the United Service group.
