RAAF A87 Vickers Valletta
|The Valetta was a military
transport development of the Viking Ib civil airliner.
The 158th Viking became the prototype Valetta and was was first flown from Brooklands by Mutt Summers on 30 June 1947.
The Valetta differed from the Viking fundamentally in being fitted with more powerful engines, a strengthened floor, large loading doors and metal skinned wings.
The Valetta never entered service with the RAAF and the serial was therefore unused.
