Here is a picture that showed up taken in England probably taken in 1966 while en-route to South Africa from the looks of all the cargo just behind the pilots seat.
And I see it has the trailing wire antenna for the ferry radio still on it in this photo.

I opened the photo as #1 in the queue at the top of the page
