1946 Vickers-Viking

A poster issued in the year this twin engine performed its first scheduled commercial service between Northolt (London) and Copenhagen on 1 September 1946. Like the Dc-3 which it resembled it was a short range (2,740 km), low speed (338 km/h) non pressurized (ceiling 25,000ft/7,600 metres) plane for a small number of passengers (36) of which 163 were built until 1949.
