Well Andy, you will be lucky... There is one here:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/161009780755? ... 1423.l2649 but with 5 days to go it is already at £84! They command very high prices I am afraid...

Definitely a bad move selling... I hope you got a good price!

I bought one last year for £150

It's a nice book but Lance Cole's is a better one for technical details.

Best regards.

For anyone still looking to get the book Silent Swift Superb: Story of the Vickers VC10 Commercial Airlines Aircraft there is one on eBay at a reasonable starting price at the moment... no doubt it will go for a lot more, but at least it is not starting at £300!!!

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Silent-Swift- ... 3a83cb3d55

Best of luck... and btw, the sal is nothing to do with me, I just saw it posted :D
