THE VICKERS VISCOUNT
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 com-
mercial 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 avail-
able, a free CD is also featured containing timetables and memora-
bilia 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 pho-
tographs, including 67 colour plates. A4. Hardback. 448 pages.
