RTW Retro Flight #105 Munich to Vienna . . . . . 1961


Recommended Posts

British European Airways flight 522 is a Vickers Viscount 806 on a flight from Munich to Vienna (EDMR - LOWW). We have 600 gallons of fuel on board for the 196 nm flight of about 1 hour and 5 minutes. We have good weather with moderate cloud cover for the first part of the flight, but we expect thunderstorms and heavy overcast beginning about the halfway point. We will be cruising at an altitude of 17,000 feet.
