  Remarks  
The second production aircraft built by Vickers-Armstrong, G-ALWF made her first flight on 3 December 1952 before delivery to British European Airways (BEA) in February 1953. BEA assigned names to its fleet of Viscount aircraft; G-ALWF was named after the British Arctic explorer Sir John Franklin. In December 1954, during landing, she suffered a collapse of her starboard main landing gear, but was repaired and returned to service the following May.

In late 1963 G-ALWF was sold to Channel Airways, based at Southend. She was subsequently leased to Tradair and then British Eagle, before being sold to Cambrian Airways in December 1965. She was officially retired on 24 December 1971. G-ALWF was flown to Liverpool in 1972 for static display before transfer to Duxford on 22 February 1976.
