Would you like to be more involved?

The aim of the Vickers Viscount Network is to remain the foremost Viscount reference source. We need people with a passion for this aircraft to help us increase the information contained on our website that already exceeds over 20,000 pages of information and photos. Our reseachers are people who want a more hands on involvement with the development of our project and their research subject will be whatever aspect of the Viscount that they have an interest in.

Our volunteers have the responsibility that may include researching all aspects of the history of the Viscount, locating documents' and photos, writing and preparing reports, providing technical data to Viscount restoration projects, public relations, solving mysteries, giving advice to model makers, providing data for authors, artists and computer simulator programmers, etc..

Whatever your interest in the Viscount you will be most welcome to join our research team where ever you live.

There are no deadlines or anyone pushing for things to be done, each reseacher just does whatever they can whenever they can. Some people are only able to do a couple of hours each month while others put in many hours a week. We are grateful for whatever they are able to do to progress the project.

List of reseachers past and present

Researchers are issued with their own Vickers Viscount Network e-mail address to use as they see fit and receive a copy of all messages sent to our mail boxes. We get some really interesting messages from all over the world from people with an interest in the Viscount. Researchers are encouraged to join in with the replies if they have something to contribute. Typically we receive two or three messages a day so your in-box will not be overwhelmed.
