Readers interested in aviation history might like to know that the Vickers Viscount Aviation Society is organising a special day at the Imperial War Museum’s Duxford facility on Saturday 31 July. Visitors will be able to view the world’s oldest remaining Viscount G-ALWF c/n 5, a Duxford resident.
The Vickers Viscount, designed by a team lead by Sir George Edwards, first flew in 1948, the last withdrawn by British Airways 1985, with British World Airlines continuing operations until 1995. The Viscount was a trend setter, very comfortable to fly in and winning international sales success. Some 445 were built making it arguably Britain’s most successful air transport aircraft. www.vickersviscount.net http://duxford.iwm.org.uk
