we have owned our Hobby 750FMC since December 2003, and it has been homr for us nearly three and a half years. It is large enough for long term living.and all the facilities have been fully functional and reliable. We have recently lived in the MV for twelve months and having three/four separate areas it works very well. It has been very reliable and returns approx. 25 Miles to the gallon with sensible throttle. Only downside is there is no electric heating or water heating, although newer model has remedied this issue. 22,000 miles and only a drive shaft collapsing in the first year, which was replaced free of charge by Fiat. The layout is hard to beat. We have yet to find a MV with the same amount of interior space, and the vehicle is so stable, particularly due to the six\wheeled configuration.

The worldâs first turbo-prop airliner was the British made Vickers Viscount. The first flight took place in 1948 with a more powerful engined Type 700 taking flight on August 3 1950. A stretched variant named Type 800 was 3 feet 10 inches longer with even more power and a new fuel system and flew on July 27 1956. It could carry 71 passengers soit soon was operating with about 70 airlines and 9 militaries around the world. Production ended in 1964 with 445 aircraft of all types produced.Originally G-AWCV was built as c/n 186 for BOAC Associated Companies. The Viscount 760D first flew on December 13, 1956 and was delivered to BOAC on January 1, 1957 as VR-HFI and had been fitted with slipper tanks. The aircraft was immediately leased to Hong Kong Airways and over time it carried various registrations when leased to Malayan Airways and Aden Airways. On April 7, 1968 the aircraft was sold to British Midland Airways with the registration G-AWCV. On November 28, 1969 G-AWCV madeits final scheduled flight before being stored in April 1970 where it was stripped of its usable parts and finally scrapped in May 1970.
