Ask Me All Your Questions

00:01:41.346 –> 00:01:45.156
Hi. Hi hi Bill. Where have you been all morning?

00:01:45.226 –> 00:01:50.926
He’s got to get down to the airport. Yeah we throw our brand new airplane to, you’ll have to tell me all about it.

00:01:50.936 –> 00:01:56.226
What did you see? We saw the Capital Airlines Vickers Viscount. You should hear. Come. What’s my name for you And you.

00:01:54.800 –> 00:02:02.160
Music.

00:01:58.656 –> 00:02:03.536
And I got a book all about it. Mr Grant says it’s a whole new kind of airplane.

00:02:03.656 –> 00:02:07.256
Gosh it even sounds different. Sure I know the by Count.

00:02:07.646 –> 00:02:10.556
Your mother and I flew on one last summer when we were in Europe.

00:02:11.166 –> 00:02:18.166
In fact the nicest flight we had on our whole trip was the one we had on the by Count. What makes it so different dad?

00:02:19.246 –> 00:02:24.866
Well son that’s sort of a long story but if you’re really interested I’ll try and explain it to you.

00:02:24.976 –> 00:02:32.436
Poor engines on the vai Count or something very special when you’re inside you can hardly hear them and there’s no vibration at all.

00:02:32.446 –> 00:02:37.106
What’s vibration when anything moves or shakes? It’s vibrating.

00:02:37.646 –> 00:02:43.266
For example, if I, if I take this hammer and hit the boat, you can feel it where you’re sitting.

00:02:43.276 –> 00:02:46.476
Well, that’s because the boards in the deck are vibrating.

00:02:46.876 –> 00:03:00.356
Now, most motors and engines on automobiles and airplanes have vibration because they have a lot of reciprocating parts, pistons that go up and down. Remember I showed you that at the garage the other day?

00:03:00.746 –> 00:03:04.856
Well, that’s the kind of motion that makes vibration and noise too.

00:03:05.746 –> 00:03:14.506
The vai count doesn’t have pistols but has rotary action engines made up of wheels that turn and that eliminates the vibration and cuts down on the noise.

00:03:14.516 –> 00:03:20.466
So if you’re a passenger, you get a nice quiet ride and at the end of a flight you feel much better.

00:03:22.746 –> 00:03:26.456
Here’s the book that tells about capital five parents. Would you explain it to us?

00:03:26.656 –> 00:03:31.956
Sure. See, capital calls it a new concept in flight. Mm.

00:03:27.120 –> 00:03:41.360
Music.

00:03:39.246 –> 00:03:46.266
Yeah. For the first time in history, air travel becomes something more than a race against time.

00:03:46.846 –> 00:03:57.056
Yes, you’re looking at the world’s first propeller turbine airliner, the Vickers by Count, powered by four sleek rolls Royce turboprop engine.

00:03:57.520 –> 00:04:10.320
Music.

00:04:10.630 –> 00:04:20.620
For 50 years, rolls Royce has made fine automobiles, masterpiece is known the world over for their custom construction, precision and quality.

00:04:21.230 –> 00:04:27.310
For 40 years, rolls Royce Aero engines have helped to write air age history.

00:04:27.720 –> 00:04:33.440
The propeller turbine or turboprop engine is their latest engineering achievement.

00:04:34.330 –> 00:04:39.780
The engine has a minimum of moving parts, which results in a smooth, steady flow of power.

00:04:40.100 –> 00:04:44.380
Air is drawn into the engine and directed through a two stage compressor.

00:04:44.840 –> 00:04:51.550
The compressed air is then forced to combustion chambers, where it is mixed with low volatile kerosene and burned.

00:04:51.930 –> 00:05:04.480
The tremendous energy created drives a two stage turbine. The power is transmitted by a shaft to drive the engine compressor and then through a high ratio reduction gear to drive the propeller.

00:05:06.930 –> 00:05:17.250
The air traveler benefits not only from the swiftness these dual like engines provide, but even more important, he enjoys a quieter, more comfortable flight.

00:05:21.030 –> 00:05:35.150
The magic of the name Rolls Royce has become synonymous with class and quality, and its aviation engine division has become the accepted world leader in the design and production of gas turbine engines.

00:05:40.030 –> 00:05:53.640
To visit the aviation plant is to see the very latest in precision tools to watch engineers and craftsman that are proud of the hallmark their company has so justly earned. Mhm.

00:05:51.760 –> 00:06:15.760
Music.

00:06:02.430 –> 00:06:02.630
Yeah.

00:06:06.030 –> 00:06:06.240
Okay.

00:06:15.100 –> 00:06:21.710
Rolls Royce manufacturers, from the simplest to the most complex components for each engine.

00:06:22.000 –> 00:06:28.720
Music.

00:06:22.930 –> 00:06:24.340
Yeah. Mhm.

00:06:28.950 –> 00:06:33.650
The Rolls Royce Aviation Engine Plant is one of 5 large factories.

00:06:34.390 –> 00:06:39.300
The company employs over 35 designers, engineers and craftsman.

00:06:39.760 –> 00:07:08.240
Music.

00:07:08.622 –> 00:07:19.242
One of the most impressive things is the standard of inspection that a button or a boat is allowed to pass, unless it is precisely correct virtually without tolerant.

00:07:19.920 –> 00:07:42.320
Music.

00:07:28.622 –> 00:07:28.832
Mhm.

00:07:42.622 –> 00:07:51.342
Each propeller turbine engine is made with almost incredible care on the finest machines, with the personal attention of experts.

00:07:51.440 –> 00:08:14.160
Music.

00:08:01.022 –> 00:08:01.222
Yeah.

00:08:12.422 –> 00:08:19.372
Mm. Every creative step is closely examined to ensure perfection.

00:08:20.080 –> 00:08:51.600
Music.

00:08:51.442 –> 00:08:58.342
The engine was born of a fundamental Postwar belief that the gas turbine engine was the power plant of the future.

00:08:59.082 –> 00:09:08.292
Almost 10 years ago, the first pro-counter turbine engine was completed and exhaustive tests were underway to refine it for commercial airline use.

00:09:08.720 –> 00:09:22.640
Music.

00:09:12.782 –> 00:09:12.992
Mm.

00:09:22.482 –> 00:09:29.132
The first bike out flew in 1948 and actually operated on airline schedules in 1950.

00:09:29.680 –> 00:10:04.560
Music.

00:09:41.782 –> 00:09:43.492
Yeah. Mm. Mm.

00:09:59.682 –> 00:10:08.682
Yeah, it is a satisfying thing to know that when final assembly has reached,

00:10:08.692 –> 00:10:16.172
the finest parts that men and machines confession had been wedded for the future service of you and I,

00:10:16.212 –> 00:10:18.422
the air travelers of the future.

00:10:18.960 –> 00:10:55.440
Music.

00:10:55.287 –> 00:11:02.517
It’s always the case with the rolls Royce product. These engines were developed after years of research and experimentation.

00:11:02.547 –> 00:11:09.447
They come to Capitol with over 100 million passenger hours of safe operation.

00:11:08.080 –> 00:11:18.320
Music.

00:11:16.927 –> 00:11:22.347
As each capital by count, turboprop engine is completed and tested in action.

00:11:22.727 –> 00:11:29.697
It exemplifies the Rolls Royce motto, whatever is rightly done, however humble is noble.

00:11:29.520 –> 00:11:54.640
Music.

00:11:32.627 –> 00:11:32.827
Yeah.

00:11:43.727 –> 00:11:48.227
Uh huh. Yeah.

00:11:52.827 –> 00:11:53.027
Yeah.

00:11:55.227 –> 00:12:03.347
But the ideal passenger airplane must also have close coordination between the manufacturer of the engine and the airframe.

00:12:04.127 –> 00:12:14.147
Rolls Royce and Vickers. Armstrongs have been working together since 1916 and as a team they have designed and built some of the world’s most famous airplanes.

00:12:14.000 –> 00:12:19.920
Music.

00:12:15.527 –> 00:12:19.287
Mhm mm No fee me.

00:12:19.297 –> 00:12:33.907
First aircraft to fly the Atlantic piloted by Cockrel and Brown in 1919, The Schneider Trophy plane that established the world speed record of 407.5 mph in 1931.

00:12:33.917 –> 00:12:37.247
Remarkable when you consider the date.

00:12:38.960 –> 00:13:03.280
Music.

00:13:05.505 –> 00:13:13.425
Today as in the past, the team is working together on military projects like the massive four engine jet bomber, the value.

00:13:13.360 –> 00:13:18.480
Music.

00:13:18.585 –> 00:13:23.025
And the most modern of all commercial planes. The capital bike out.

00:13:23.600 –> 00:13:36.560
Music.

00:13:35.455 –> 00:13:41.525
When the Vickers Armstrongs and the Rolls Royce design team went to work on the bike count.

00:13:41.905 –> 00:13:54.325
They created an airframe and a turbine engine that suited each other perfectly, an airplane that would pamper passengers with swift, smooth, silent and sure life,

00:13:57.205 –> 00:14:05.425
to satisfy a growing passenger preference. Vickers Armstrongs, gigantic factories are turning off more and more by cars.

00:14:09.200 –> 00:14:45.040
Music.

00:14:14.205 –> 00:14:14.415
Mhm.

00:14:20.775 –> 00:14:21.375
Yeah.

00:14:44.405 –> 00:14:51.025
The fuselage metal is sprayed with a plastic covering to protect its clean lines until first flight.

00:14:51.760 –> 00:15:06.000
Music.

00:15:06.505 –> 00:15:15.445
As each new plane gets its engines, wings and wheels, technicians move in to complete the many final assembly details of wiring and cabling.

00:15:15.600 –> 00:15:22.480
Music.

00:15:20.405 –> 00:15:20.825
Mm.

00:15:22.905 –> 00:15:28.245
After months of precision construction, each capital of icon gets its colors.

00:15:28.880 –> 00:15:51.120
Music.

00:15:51.978 –> 00:16:01.898
But even before its maiden flight, exhaustive ground tests are run, engines are checked and rechecked. Instruments are proven.

00:16:03.120 –> 00:16:22.480
Music.

00:16:04.278 –> 00:16:14.788
Mm right. Mhm.

00:16:17.378 –> 00:16:17.578
Yeah.

00:16:22.278 –> 00:16:31.588
To qualify for the capital fleet, each plane must fly on three engines, two engines And even on one engine.

00:16:32.880 –> 00:16:42.320
Music.

00:16:41.978 –> 00:16:53.288
The result of all this ingenious design, careful construction and painstaking inspection is a new and unique flight for you the passenger.

00:16:53.360 –> 00:18:03.280
Music.

00:18:03.128 –> 00:18:14.078
Once the long you will climb between 1500 and 3000 ft a minute and yet you won’t feel this rapid change because of perfect air conditioning and pressurization.

00:18:15.168 –> 00:18:19.388
In a matter of minutes. He will be above the weather in the highest blue.

00:18:19.600 –> 00:18:49.840
Music.

00:18:31.268 –> 00:18:33.568
Mhm. Yeah.

00:18:35.968 –> 00:18:43.588
Inside you will relax because the vibration and noise of previous flight is turbine hushed.

00:18:47.268 –> 00:18:54.098
Mhm. Mhm. The by count will get you to your destination in the shortest possible time.

00:18:54.108 –> 00:18:57.678
Whether your journey is 200 or 1200 miles,

00:19:00.468 –> 00:19:07.878
through the largest panoramic window on any airplane, the world is yours to see For the first time.

00:19:07.888 –> 00:19:11.768
Even passengers in aisle seats have an unobstructed view.

00:19:11.920 –> 00:19:47.760
Music.

00:19:47.636 –> 00:19:51.566
It’s not a trick. My Count Flight is so smooth.

00:19:51.576 –> 00:19:58.426
You can build a tower Or balance a quarter at 25 ft.

00:19:57.200 –> 00:20:13.520
Music.

00:20:12.876 –> 00:20:25.196
One of America’s top industrial designers selected the attractive interior furnishings, created color harmony and arranged the deep cushion seats in comfortable pairs. Yeah.

00:20:27.276 –> 00:20:34.796
Or your enjoyment. You’ll find a personal table on the back of each seat that quickly and easily slides into a level position.

00:20:34.480 –> 00:20:40.080
Music.

00:20:39.876 –> 00:20:54.796
A table to rest your book or beverage to hold your food tray for a more enjoyable meal. The luxury of the capital of I Count is a quiet elegance once known. Never forgotten.

00:20:56.476 –> 00:20:56.686
Yeah,

00:20:59.276 –> 00:21:03.686
passengers around the globe have come to recognize the advantages of the bike on.

00:21:07.276 –> 00:21:11.576
Tourists to England are as impressed with it as they are with London’s.

00:21:11.440 –> 00:21:42.160
Music.

00:21:42.581 –> 00:21:50.701
The vehicle is a familiar sight at Orly Field in paris familiar as the artistry. Um, And the Eiffel Tower.

00:21:50.000 –> 00:22:32.240
Music.

00:21:57.281 –> 00:21:59.281
Yeah, yeah.

00:22:20.581 –> 00:22:23.901
Mm. The irish have a name for it, too.

00:22:28.781 –> 00:22:41.981
Mhm. The ruins of Athens, the beauty of Rome are hours closer, thanks to regular by Count service. Yeah.

00:22:40.560 –> 00:22:54.960
Music.

00:22:55.681 –> 00:23:08.561
Around the world. Australia Africa, India South America Canada and now the fight Count, a global favorite, brings swift, smooth, silent and sure flight,

00:23:08.621 –> 00:23:11.641
to the greatest industrial centers of the United States.

00:23:12.240 –> 00:23:30.320
Music.

00:23:31.103 –> 00:23:35.623
Yes, it’s a new standard of service, the Capital Airlines via Count.

00:23:36.103 –> 00:23:42.293
Accommodating millions of travelers from the atlantic to the west from Canada to the gulf of Mexico.

00:23:42.903 –> 00:23:53.133
You know, you’ve been writing the cockpit of airplanes as long as I have the real thrill to see a plane like the Vicomte come along its tops with the pilots.

00:23:53.883 –> 00:24:00.223
The four propeller turbine engines. Get it off the ground quickly climbs beautifully, handles easily.

00:24:00.703 –> 00:24:05.723
Landings are a real pleasure. And above all, it has plenty of reserve power.

00:24:06.113 –> 00:24:10.323
And of course up front you’ll find all the latest radio and navigational equipment.

00:24:10.843 –> 00:24:18.423
Now, I’ve been talking a good deal about the plane’s passenger comforts. Well, believe me, you’ll find those same advantages in pilot comfort.

00:24:18.743 –> 00:24:25.463
You see after long flights, pilots are less tired, thanks to the lack of vibration and noise.

00:24:25.473 –> 00:24:30.623
It’s a wonderful plane to maintain Why you can change an engine in just 30 minutes.

00:24:31.103 –> 00:24:39.433
As a matter of fact, the plane is built so that you can perform routine maintenance checks right on the ground without having to use ladders or stands.

00:24:39.753 –> 00:24:44.013
Why you even fuel the plane on the ground. No more wing climbing.

00:24:44.463 –> 00:24:53.553
And of course, this all adds up too fast, efficient ground handling, which in turn means more dependable on time passenger service.

00:24:54.273 –> 00:25:01.973
The White Count is another milestone in aviation history, brilliant history of progress and public service.

00:25:02.803 –> 00:25:08.713
Capital Airlines is proud of over a quarter of a century of serving air mind in America,

00:25:09.103 –> 00:25:20.193
and we’re extremely proud to be the first carrier in the United States to introduce the account with its four engines, truly a new concept.

00:25:20.720 –> 00:27:06.633
