In 1947, a Vickers Viking joined the inventory of two Douglas Dakotas and two Harvards of the newly independent Pakistan's first communications flight at Mauripur (Masroor) airfield. The Viking was used exclusively for the travels of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the first Governor General of Pakistan. The aircraft is now preserved in the PAF Museum in honoured memory of the Founder of the Nation.
