    Background: The BAC One-Eleven 475 jetliner made its maiden flight on 27th August, 1970 at the Hurn (Bournemouth) factory of the Weybridge Division of British Aircraft Corporation - a month ahead of programme. It was piloted by Mr. Roy Radford, Assistant Chief Test Pilot (One-Eleven).

    The aircraft concerned is G-ASYD, BAC's own development and demonstration aircraft which is now the aerodynamic prototype of the BAC One-Eleven 475 - newest development of British Aircraft Corporation world-acclaimed One-Eleven family of jetliners.

    Directly derived from the latest development of 90-119 seat One-Eleven 500, the 74-89 seat One-Eleven is being specially developed to bring the benefits of jet service to the many hundreds of "country" routes that have hitherto been the exclusive domain of the propeller-driven airliner.

    In production, the One-Eleven 475 is to be fitted with a specially developed low-pressure landing gear tyre system to enable it to operate from secondary low-strength runways with poorer grade surfaces.

    Concurrently, the first production One-Eleven 475 is also at an advanced stage of assembly at Hurn and large components of several more series production aircraft are now in manufacture at three BAC factories.
