Recommended Posts

The book goes into great detail of the development, service, variants and full history of a classic British Turboprop Airliner the Vickers Viscount. This aircraft has a special place in my heart as its one of the first aircraft I did interior design work on in the early 1980's, so I jumped at the opportunity to review this. Also it is written by a very professional and knowledgeable author of lots of articles I have read and enjoyed before.

I found this book fascinating and made me aware of a lot of information I have never read before. This aircraft was a very successful aircraft and produced in greater numbers than any other British aircraft of this type.

The chapters on the genesis and development of the aircraft I found very fascinating as it told of the other aircraft that were in development and also how the Viscount nearly did not get off the drawing board. There is a bit about a jet variation of the Viscount including pictures that I was unaware of.
