KLM was the first non-British airline to order the Vickers Viscount 800 series. They were delivered in 1957 and were named after aviation pioneers. KLM's nine Viscounts, which were the airline's first turboprop equipped aircraft, were mainly used on the European network. With the introduction of the short to medium haul jetliners in 1966 the days of the Viscount with KLM were numbered. The whole fleet was sold to the Irish Viscount operator Aer Lingus. This repaint represents Viscount PH-VID 'Otto Lilienthal' in the livery of the 1957-1960 period. These are textures only. You will require Jens B. Kristensens Vickers Viscount package (VISCOUNT_10X.ZIP). Repaint by Maarten Brouwer.
