BUA Take Off Performance Graphs

In this section you will find scans of a set of British United Airways Take Off Performance Graphs. These are presented here to give an insight into the planning stages of a VC10 flight. Also those who wish to make their Microsoft Flight Simulator experience a bit more complicated may wish to examine these charts. I do not have the manual to go with these charts unfortunately, so you will have to figure out the steps by yourself. This set of charts is from a spiral bound set that was used on the flight deck.

This data is presented for informational purposes only, nothing in this section should ever be used for any real-world flight planning or flying! Take note: the images on these pages are large, slow loading times can be expected!
