The Geminair Britannia 9G-ACE, below, was pictured sometime in 1980. Geminair was a Ghanaian on-demand cargo operator formed in 1974 and was the first privately-owned airline in that country. It later chartered Dag Air and Anglo Cargo Airlines Boeing 707s. This Britannia ended up with Lukum Air Services as 9Q-CUM in 1981 and was later sold to Katale Aero Transport for spares and was eventually broken up at Kinshasa in 1986. This was the last Britannia built at Filton and was in service with the RAF as XM520. In this photo you can still see the basic RAF scheme.
