Deutsche Lufthansa AG

This aircraft c/n 447, a V.814, was built for Deutsche Lufthansa AG as D-ANAF and first flew on Saturday, 9 December 1961 at Weybridge, Surrey, England.

Its final owner/operator was Technik Museum Speyer as D-ANAF.

Its fate:-

Withdrawn from service by Deutsche Lufthansa AG in January 1969.

A sale to Nora Air Services (NAS) was not completed despite the aircraft being painted in their livery.

Used for technical training at Rhein-Main Airport, Frankfurt, West Germany from April 1972 including a repaint in Lufthansa livery 1978 to 1980.

The Viscount was replaced in the training role in 2011 by a Lufthansa Boeing 737-500 series aircraft. Transferred on loan to the Technik Museum Speyer 21 September 2012 during the preceeding night for an initial 20 year period. A museum definitely worth a visit!
