Vickers Victoria

The Victoria 22-troop transport was built between the Vernon and Valentia. Production for the RAF totalled 94 aircraft. Entering service in 1926, it was powered by two 425kW Napier Lion engines. A commercial counterpart, the Vanguard, was less successful.

The Victoria is best remembered for its role during the Kabul airlift, when people and baggage were transported out of Kabul during tribal disturbances. Maximum level speed was 177km/h.
