VC10 on TV in the 70's?

Post by Magnum »

Talking to my father this morning about a photo I remember seeing once of him taken onboard an aircraft many years ago he mentioned there were two times he appeared on TV while flying.

He recalls once was on an Argosy and the other a VC10. One was for a kids TV programme and the other he thinks may have been for Tomorrows World.

The VC10 programme would have had to be between 1967 and 1976 and the Argosy before '67.

I am going to look around the 'net but wondered if anyone has any memories of these?

Rich.

I seem to remember that the film used on Top of The Pops for the song 'Leaving On a Jet Plane' featured amongst others a VC10.

Have seem other programmes from the 60's and 70's where a VC10 was featured, but damned if I can remember which ones they were.

I know dad also featured on a children's tv show in the '60's but that was when he was on Argosy's.

Whickers World used to feature a VC10 in the opening sequences.

I know dad used to instruct BOAC personnel on VC10 Performance but the programme was filmed aboard a military VC10.

The only times he ever crewed a commercial aircraft was when the RAF would periodically fly them down Berlin air corridors in the 1960's.
