The image, taken from a pencil drawing by Stephen Brown, features passengers boarding a British European Airways Vickers Viscount at London Airport in the mid 1950s. The Vickers Viscount was he world's first turboprop airliner and one of Britain's most successful post war commercial aircraft. The Vickers Viscount flew with more than 60 operators but the principle one was British European Airways. At its peak BEA had a fleet of some 77 aircraft in service. Designed in the 1940s, the first Viscount entered service in 1953 and the type was still operating commercially well into the 1990s.
