Better Days

There is a nice poster on the wall of Wayne Andre's "The Touring Shoppe" in Las Vegas.

It is of a Vickers Viscount and a Silver Cloud in the good old days when Vickers and Rolls-Royce were still friends.

Here is some footage of the Vickers Viscount part of the British European Airways fleet.

Immigration office is slightly different today.

For the plane spotters, here is a British European Airways Vickers Viscount displaying 806 G-AOYH.

Now the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud in a 1958 photo.

Oh how things changed.

Including that of the relationship between Vickers and Rolls-Royce. Read the excellent book 'Kidnap of the Flying Lady' by Richard Feast to see what happened.
