Vickers V.803 Viscount EI-AOG "St. Fininan". This was a former KLM aircraft and had been delivered to SAL on 19 February 1966 for overhaul. It was not registered to Aer Lingus until 15 March 1966 and finally delivered on 20 May 1966

Substantially damaged 30/1/68 when the aircraft's nose gear collapsed on landing at Liverpool following a flight from Dublin. Presumably repaired, as photographed in service at Brussels in April 1968 (see link #3)
