the Ed Jones collection
To all of our contributors we say a big thank you
The Vickers Viscount Network would not have been possible without the generous support of the people listed here who
contributed their photos to the museum. To them and future contributors we say a big thank you.
Our ultimate aim is to have an image of every single aircraft in every livery that it
operated, together with images showing significant moments in each aircrafts life.
Any photograph, even a poor quality one, that shows an unique part of an aircrafts history
is better than not having one at all. Our graphic systems can restore all but the worst
image. This target will probably never be totally fulfilled, but with your help it could
Displayed will be all the Viscount photos that we have on file from the selected contributor.
