VC10 Videos

Next to the page with books about VC10s I figured it was about time I also listed the various DVDs and other videos that are available. I've started out with a list of several DVDs that can still be bought but will add other stuff to this page when I find it. If you know of a title that should be listed here please get in touch.

Videos:    

Classic Wings - Vickers VC10

Avion Video

Click here for a full review This DVD is a must for all VC10 fans, it shows the complete story of the aircraft in period footage with sound and commentary. It has been on the market for a while now but still provides the best overview of the VC10's history.

London Airport - Heathrow in the 1950s & 60s

Avion Video

Avion specialises in using restored period footage and in this video and the next one on this list it is used to show what Heathrow looked like when the VC10 was flying for BOAC and the other airlines. Both titles include segments with a VC10 in it but most of the time is devoted to other types. There is a downloadable factsheet on the Avion site which lists all the types on the DVD, see links on the right.

RAF Vickers VC10 Vancouver visit 2011

Henry Tenby

In 2011 XV104 was in Canada and needed some maintenance carried out. It flew to Vancouver to have this done and local videographer and classic airliner enthusiast Henry Tenby shot a lot of footage of this short visit which he compiled into a 40 minute DVD. Keep an eye out for a future DVD from him about Brize Norton which will definitively also include VC10s!

PBS American Experience - Hijacked

There is not an awful lot of VC10 footage on this DVD (very little to be honest), but it does tell the story of the hijackings in September 1970. There is a site to accompany the DVD, see link above.
