Aircraft operational records

Viscount c/n 435 had a long and varied career
Viscount c/n 435 had a
long and varied career

Records for all 445 aircraft built are available

The story of each Viscount is as varied as the number of aircraft built. Some like c/n 248 G-AOXU and c/n 435 G-BFZL had long and varied careers. Others like c/n 84 VH-TVG and c/n 447 D-ANAF had loyal careers with only one owner. Some however had very short careers like c/n 337 AP-AJE that crashed after only 5 months service.

To retrieve an aircraft's operational record enter either its construction number (1-459) or one of the registrations it used during its life. Note that some registrations were allocated to more than one Viscount and are marked (*).

Enter the construction number
or registration

Displayed will be all the information that we have on file for that aircraft. However the history may be incomplete, so any help you can give in completing it will be appreciated.
