The Viscount and the Rolls-Royce Dart helped put Britain ahead

United Kingdom Flag

This second part of the BBC series celebrating the British aviation industry looks at how, by 1960, the UK's passenger airline industry was the largest in the world. The development of the Viscount and the Rolls-Royce Dart is featured to illustrate how Britain was many years ahead of the rest of the world with pioneering aviation technology.

Vickers Viscount Network researcher and retired Air Canada Viscount Captain Ron MacDonald was interviewed for this film from within the cockpit of the Brooklands Museum Viscount c/n 412 G-APIM.
