The picture from Livingstone is a Pembroke, they remained in Zambia after the breakup of the Federation. They have been moved and only one remains at the airport next to the military hangar. The position in the photo is now covered by a terminal building . It was not completed when I was there earlier in the year.

What a shame. Are those airplanes salvageable? Can't be too many Pembroke's flying any more.
They are absolutely beautiful in the air.

Photo taken at the old Liverpool Airport (new airport now closer to the River.

Looks like a Percival Prince to me, definitely not military so can't be a Pembroke, also has the shorter
nose which confirms it as a Prince
