The "Capital Airlines Association purchased, made air worthy and donated N7471 to the Mid Atlantic Air musuem
Vickers Armstrong V745D Viscount N7471



Subject: Mid Atlantic Air Museum Viscount
Date: Wed, 28 Sep 2005

Gary,
I saw a post online regarding MAAM's Viscount. Unfortunately while the museum was starting the engines a while back they discovered that one of the engines was bad. Due to the high cost of replacement, work on the Viscount has been suspended. Further complicating things is the change in airshow dynamics since Sept 11 2001. Prior to that date vintage airliners were in demand, since then they have not. Since I spent quite a bit of time working on this a/c, I am hopeful that some day work will continue and I will have a chance to ride in the Viscount.

Please note, this is a personal response, not the official museum response.

Regards,
MAAM volunteer.
