View Full Version : Alidair Viscount 800s

Did Alidair own or operate any other series 800s other than G-AZNH and G-AVIW ? When did they leave the fleet ? I've seen a picture of one of them at Leeds Bradford on a YouTube slideshow (probably doing a Dutch bulbfield job) and I'd like to know roughly when it was.

I know Alidair mainly operated the 700s.

I know they had a Viscount 812 registered G-AVJL.

They operated G-AOYG with Alidair titles-but old BA colours in 1975.
I flew on it a couple of times-can send you a copy of one of my photos if you pm me your email address.
It may have been leased but was certainly crewed by Alidair pilots and Cabin crew.

Thankyou Lynx and Halcyon. Obviously one or two more than I thought.

Halcyon, see your PMs please.

Thanks rog. I don't know why I didn't look on the Vickers Viscount network to begin with.
