Not something everybody will be able to do in real life, and
unfortunately, that's not what I'm offering. Luckily there are several VC10s
available for Microsoft Flight Simulator and Prepar3D. For an explanation on how to use these
aircraft in Flight Simulator 98 or 2000, read this
text file, FS2002/FS2004/FSX users: read the notice below. I try to keep as many VC10s as possible available here, but there is
one exception from this: I only link to VC10s in 'real life' colourschemes. If
you're interested in VC10s in fake schemes you will not find them here.
David Maltby and
Rick Piper are responsible for creating an almost complete collection of VC10s
for FS2002 and FS2004. For more classic

and Dave Booker based on an opportunity to get some close up experience of
the RAF's VC10 C1K's, here is an accurate panel for this specific VC10
version. Best used with the newest version of the C1K available above, this
