Here,s GASG-P At Abingdon Air Show I took In September 1985,she was opened up for the public,a very rare event..I flew on vc10,s as a boy in the mid 60,s to 1971 mainly to Nigeria Kano and lagos,i was shuved under my mums seat on decent into Kano once as a baby on a nigeria airways flight by the Nigeria airhostess,that aircraft crashed soon afterwards near lagos..You might say the vc10 is in my blood..i once spent the night in a hedge waiting for the Brize Norton Airshow in 1984..A year later i was at Abingdon to record the stored BA Super vc10 fleet...it goes on..anyway... ive raided my shed and Ive started getting them into groups on flickre,please have a browse...

Some really good pics there.

We used to use the Gulf Air at Brize for spares now and then, I think eventually the nose gear axle snapped, and it was scrapped.

Some nice memories.
I have a handful of transparencies from the 70's but would have to have them professionally copied as my scanner only does a low resolution copy. :cry:

Some great photos there, what a collection!

On a side note, and please don't take this the wrong way, but an aircraft registration is G-XXXX not GXXX-X! ;)
