Overview

One of the bestselling aircraft of British civil aviation, the BAC 1-11 took to the skies for the first time in August 1963, with an order book for 60 aircraft. More than half the orders were from the United States, an unprecedented situation for a British civil aircraft. The only aircraft wholly designed and built by BAC, it remained in production throughout the entire 17-year history of the organization, performing strongly even when profits were at a low. After flying commercially for the last time in March 2002, here the 1-11 is celebrated in style 50 years after its maiden flight. Skinner combines original research with a multitude of images and detailed appendices to consider what transpired in those five decades and the place the 1-11 holds in British aviation history.
