Rolls-royce Dart

Date:
1970
Publisher/Studio:
Derby, England, United Kingdom: Rolls-Royce Ltd.

This is a 1970 model of the Rolls-Royce Dart turboprop. First introduced in 1948, the turboprop combined the power of jet propulsion with the efficiency of propellers. It was widely used in the first generation of turboprop-powered aircraft, including the British Vickers Viscount and the Dutch Fokker F-27. The Dart enabled these and other new airliners to lower airline operating costs and bring greater speed and comfort to passengers traveling on short-to-medium length routes.
