Vickers Viscount

The Aircraft

The Vickers Viscount originated from the Brabazon Committee proposals for post World War II civil transports, specifically for a 24 seat short/medium range transport with turboprop engines.  The 32-seat Type 630 first flew in 1948 but generated no commercial interest.

Several versions were built culminating in the 65-seat Type 810.  A total of 444 were built making it the UK's most extensively built airliner of all time when production ceased in 1964.

Type: Commercial
Engine: four 2,100 hp (1566 kW) Rolls-Royce Dart RDa.7/1 Mk 525 turboprops
