Title: Vickers Vanguard
The Vickers Vanguard was a medium range turboprop intended as an enlarged successor to the earlier Viscount, and first flew in 1959. Unfortunately it’s service entry co-incided with the introduction of the first large jet-powered airliners and it only attracted two customers, British European Airways (BEA) and Trans-Canada Airlines (TCA).
Consequently only 44 examples were built, and by the early 1970’s all examples had been converted from passenger to freight configuration. These freight aircraft gave very good service, all around the world, and the last example was only retired in 1996.
This title contains the flight manual for the Vickers Vanguard as used by Air Canada, the successor to TCA, along with two nice manufacturer’s brochures. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
