The world's first turbo-prop airliner was the British made Vickers Viscount. The first flight took
place in 1948 with a more powerful engined Type 700 taking flight on August 3 1950. A
stretched variant named Type 800 was 3 feet 10 inches longer with even more power and a
new fuel system and flew on July 27 1956. It could carry 71 passengers so it soon was
operating with about 70 airlines and 9 militaries around the world. Production ended in 1964
with 445 aircraft of all types produced.
MSN 247 was a Vickers Viscount V.779 built for Fred Olsen Flyselskap A/S and registered as
LN-FOM. The aircraft powered by Rolls-Royce Dart 510 engines first flew at Hurn, England on
Monday March 11, 1957 and was delivered to Fred Olsen on April 30, 1957. On January 1,
1958 the aircraft was leased to AUA Austrian Airlines and was registered as OE-LAE. After 2
years and 4 months the aircraft was returned to Fred Olsen in April, 1960. BEA British
European Airways was the next to lease the aircraft in June 1960 and registered it as G-ARBW.
BEA returned the aircraft in April 1961. From December 1961 until January 1962 (2 months)
SAS - Scandinavian Airlines System leased the aircraft as LN-FOM. Once again returned to
Fred Olsen the aircraft was sold to IAC - Indian Airlines Corp. on January 28, 1962. The new
registration was VT-DOD and given the name "Madras" and later renamed "Mysore". MSN 247
was in operation as VT-DOD for 9 years before being withdrawn from service in July 1971. The
aircraft was stored for a while but eventually fell victim to the wrecker at Palam, Delhi, India.
