Bravo Delta Models (130) - Vickers Viscount BEA - Scale Model Aircraft, complete with display stand. Scale 1:72, length 16"/406mm, span 14"/356 mm, height 3"/75 mm.
The prototype Model 630 flew on 16 July 1948, and was awarded a restricted Certificate of Airworthiness on 15 September 1949, followed by a full Certificate on 27 July 1950, and placed into BEA service the next day to familiarize the pilots and ground crew with the new aircraft. The type continued in BEA and British Airways service until early 1985, eventually being passed on to charter operators such as British Air Ferries (later British World). The last British-owned Viscounts were sold to Africa where 5 are still in use (June 2007).
