The airliners of the 1960s provided the aviation enthusiast with the greatest diversity of aircraft ever to be seen – before or since.

The rather rotund outline of a Vickers Viking, a direct descendant of the famous Wellington World War II bomber, could be spotted taxiing behind a Boeing 707, one of the new generation of intercontinental jet airliners. There was a heady mixture of propellers and turbojets, aeroplanes of character and grace, colour schemes that flattered the lines of an aircraft rather than the egos of airlines.

This book features 150 colour pictures taken during the 1960s. All photographs are fully captioned with date, locations and the fate of the aircraft.
