Vickers 610 Viking

vicks-viking


The Viking was a twin-engined 24-27-seat transport and was the first completely new post-World War II airliner to fly in the world. For speed and cheapness parts of the Wellington bomber were used, particularly in the wings. The fuselage, of stressed-skin construction, was new.

British European Airways operated a fleet of 49 on its European network and total production was 163. BEA aircraft were modified to allow them to carry up to 34 or 38 tourist-class passengers when required. Four also flew with the Queen's Flight.
