ghana airways vc10 london office model turns up on e bay

Post by vc10boy » Thu Oct 08, 2009 1:41 pm

i noticed what looks like the origional ghana airways vc10 london office model has just been sold on ebay for over 2oo quid..i once took a girlfreind of mine on a trip to london in 1981..i was 15 and a vc10 nut even then..anyway we went to the ghana airways office and altho thy had just retired the vc10..i think she went to prestwick,,the model in the window was still there,i took a few photo,s..i beleive im stood in one pic ,vc10 behind me.i did enquire if the 26 inch model was for sale [-o< but it had already been sold :( ..im sure my then girlfreind had a great time]..anyway it was a surprise to see the model turn up again after all these years,she must have been sat in that window watching london go thru the swinging sixties and funky seventies....i did throw a bid in but lost out..i hear thru the grape vine another raf ten is soon to be scrapped,anyone got any news?..what a great shame, bet its the last of the boac supers.has anyone ever seen any otheer airline models around of the vc10..did,nt cosford and duxford get the ba models...east african ten spotted in amsterdam in an aviation enthusiasts shop? :) ..any pics anyone.

Despair ye not!
Quite a number were made.....



... to replace the ones which ended up carrying out ditching trials in hotel swimming pools.


They fly quite well too!
