Douglas Holland Notes:
There is no way I can summarize the British United Airways Story in a footnote to a Picture. Too many strands (BUA, BUAF, BUIA, BUA Hovercraft, BUA Helicopters, the temporary resurrection of Britavia, larger than life personalities (e.g. Freddie Laker, Alan Bristow, the Cazyer Family). I hope one day soon someone will produce a Book(s) that does Air Holdings/BUA Story justice. Meanwhile to learn more about BUA see:

British United Airways - Wikipedia Entry
The following British Caledonian Airways Tribute Sites also cover BUA to some extent

In this Album see: G-AYZZ Boeing 707-323 of Caledonian-BUA at London Gatwick (LGW)
and the associated picture notes: Caledonian plus BUA equals Caledonian//BUA
