Aircraft operational records
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
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.
