Founded in 1948 based at Blackpool, Starways moved to Liverpool the following year. It expanded throughout the 1950's and in 1961 this Viscount was acquired from Air France where it had served since June 1954 as F-BGNS. At the end of 1962 it was joined by G-APZB, a series 707 which came from Tradair. In late 1963 a co-operation agreement was signed with British Eagle which was in effect a take over of Starways operations. Effective from 1st January 1964 British Eagle Viscounts appeared with Starways titles. G-APZB was sold to Channel and this machine returned to France and a new career with Air Inter as F-BLHI. It returned to the UK with Alidair in June 1975 and after various leases and livery changes was sold in December 1983 to Janus. Eleven months later it was sold to MMM Aero Services of Zaire as 9Q-CAH in November 1984. However it only got as far as Ostend in Belgium where it was broken up in December 1988. Requires the FSDS Viscount 700 model by Rick Piper. By Garry Russell.
