Incorporating Wibault construction techniques, the Viastra twelve-passenger airliner first flew in 1930. A small number were built, with one, two or three engines. The single Viastra X with two Pegasus radials and a seven-seat interior was built for the Prince of Wales. Still unpainted here, it was later red and gold. Replaced by the red and blue Dragon Rapide G-ADDD, G-ACCC ended up with the RAF as L6102 and was broken up in 1937.
