The Vickers Viscount Network and the Viscount 35 Association invited everyone with an interest in the Vickers Viscount to a gathering of like-minded people at MAM - Midland Air Museum, Baginton, Coventry, Warwickshire, England on Saturday 19th April 2008.

They were to meet Brian Burrage and Geoff Blampied, co-founders of the Virtual Museum, together with several members of the UK research team. The Vickers Viscount Network was created in 2005 and now attracts many thousands of visitors each month. Our visitors come from all walks of life that includes air crew, aviation enthusiasts, artists, model makers, photographers, collectors of related items, fliers of computer simulators, just to mention a few.

Martin Garrett of the Viscount 35 Association showed visitors the work so far completed on their Viscount 'Victoria Lynne' F-BGNR and described how and when the aircraft will be re-assembled.

The chairman of MAM - Midland Air Museum gave a brief talk about the museum. The museum has over 50 aircraft on display that helped make this a good day out for all the family.

This informal day commenced at 11 am and ran through until 3pm.


Whatever your interest in the Viscount you were most welcome to join us.
