Brief History of Viscount:
The Viscount was the world's first gas turbine engined aircraft in airline service and was the most successful post-war British airliner, with 445 examples being sold. With seating for forty to fifty-nine passengers, three large freight and luggage compartments and fitted with Rolls-Royce Dart 505 or 506 engines, it was ideally suited for short-range and medium range routes.

Later versions of the aircraft had increased fuselage lengths and the more powerful Dart 510 engines.

On November 1, 1958 a Vickers Viscount Cubana en route from Miami to Varadero to Havana was hijacked by Castro's Cuban 26th of July militants. ( When hijacks are done by them is not terrorism, for them is OK).The hijackers were trying to land at Sierra Cristal in Eastern Cuba to deliver weapons to Raul Castro's communist rebels. As night approached, eventually the plane ran out of fuel and tried an emergency landing at the Preston sugar mill, it did not make it and instead landed in the ocean and broke apart killing most passengers and crew, there were three or four survivors.

This makes a great gift, or for another upcoming event.

Esto seria un gran regalo, o para otra cercana fecha señalada.
