AIR BRITAIN BOOKS
The Vickers Viscount
by Rayner G C Kittle
The world's first turboprop airliner, the revolutionary Viscount set new standards of performance, reliability and passenger comfort. Unlike most other British airliners of its era, the Viscount was a huge commercial success - 444 were sold worldwide to operators of all kinds. The result of 35 years' research, this book, brimming with detail and nostalgia, will delight all airliner enthusiasts and those who worked with this great aeroplane. With so much nostalgic information available, a free CD is also featured containing timetables and memorabilia grouped together to form three annual snapshots of Viscount operations, 1955, 1959 and 1965, plus a colour photo gallery.
Full individual aircraft histories, development and technical data of both actual and project variants are enriched by more than 460 photographs, including 96 colour plates. A4 Hardback. 480 pages.
