A New Book About The History of The VC10

Post by WeddingVC10 »

I have heard (I may be wrong) that someone is writing a new book about the VC10's history. Does any one know about it? Thank you

There is a new book by Scott Henderson due out at some point. It is going to be a limited edition leather bound book which will include a DVD with footage of VC10 action.
Can't remember the price but it was expensive.
I believe there will be a cheaper version without the DVD too.

Sounds interesting, surely it can't be as expensive as some of the copies of Silent, Swift, Superb I have seen about for several HUNDRED pounds :shock:

Hi all,

I have written a book about my life in BOAC and BA and includes a period when I joined the VC-10 fleet in 1964 to getting a command on the aircraft in 1976. It is with the publisher at the moment and will be out by the end of the year. Pricing about 10-15£. G-ASGC at Duxford played a major part in my life. Once published it will linked to the site.

Sounds like an interesting book Gwyn, will look forward to it. The new book by Scott Henderson, as Magnum says, will be a limited edition, leather bound book. I believe limited to circa 200 copies and costing around £200 per copy. The dvd included with it will have great footage from the 2 ship fly-past that took place on Fri.20th September as Scott was fortunate to have been invited to fly in the '10' that flew the English leg of 6 airbases following its final North Sea refueling mission. 4 hours plus worth of footage there with some great close-up air to air shots. He said it may take about 18 months to publish and there will be a lesser priced copy of around £50 that wouldn't include the dvd. Should be a corker.

Does anyone know how to get in touch with Scott Henderson? I've tried Googling him with no luck. What book publisher is this new Scott Henderson book going to be with?

Where do these prices come from? Scott Henderson's new book at £50, ok, but add a leather cover and a DVD add another £150 ! :-({{|= Hope some money is going to RAF Benevolent Fund or something similar, either way I better start saving up :lol:
