The Sandringham 7 was the final Sandringham version, only three were built for BOAC as the 'Bermuda' class. When BOAC stopped using flying boats in 1950, they were sold to other operators. This particular aircraft, originally G-AKCO 'St George', ended up with Reseau Aerien Interinsulaire (later Air Polynesie, now Air Tahiti) in 1958, and was used on routes connecting Tahiti with other polynesian islands until 1970.

In 1978 it was transferred to Musee de l'Air at Le Bourget, France, where it is storage today.
