IT is nearly fifteen years since the introduction into civil operations of the Dart turboprop in the Vickers Viscount and the Ghost turbojet in the dc Havilland Comet. For many years it was thought that the turboprop would remain dominant in the short and medium haul classes, but the continued demand for higher cruising speeds and the passenger appeal of the jet have been largely responsible for the turboprop aircraft being superseded by the new generation of turbofan aircraft.
