Viscount films by Andy Lambert

Homemade films about historic Viscount events

Over the years Andy Lambert has made eight Viscount films taken at key moments in the Viscounts history.


The world’s first turbo prop airline service 40th anniversary

On Saturday 18 April 1953 BEA - British European Airways Viscount c/n 6 G-AMNY made the inaugural flight from London, England to Cyprus to start the world’s first full-time scheduled turbo-prop airline service.

To commemorate the occasion a group of aviation enthusiasts flew BWA - British World Airlines Viscount c/n 263 G-AOYN to Duxford, England. Passengers on board included Sir Peter Masefield, BEA Chairman in 1953, and Sir George Edwards, designer of the Viscount.

While at Duxford Viscount G-AOYN was renamed the 'Sprit of Brooklands' by Captain Ray Piercey.

This was another in a series of flights organised by The Friends of Viscount Stephen Piercey (the Brooklands Museum's Viscount c/n 412 G-APIM) during the nineties.
