I was in the Weybridge Design Office as a Draughtsman from 1967 to 1982. I was a bit late for the VC10 though, I worked on the One Eleven, Concorde and then MRCA/Tornado. Started off in the Mech & Fluids DO under Norman Barnes, then the Electrics DO under Charlie Ryman.

I flew the VC10 with BOAC/BA from 1968 until 1978 and the site brings back many memories.
My father, Capt Ronald Hartley was killed in the Lagos crash whilst travelling out to Lagos take up the post of Flt Ops Director with Nigerian Airways.
I had flown with him as his co-pilot on his retirement trip from BOAC just a few weeks before.
A sad end to his career and the start of mine.

Just want to thank the crew of ZD241 for the cracking taxi run performed at Brunty on sunday. It's so good to see one of these graceful looking aircraft still in running order and being looked after so well, cant wait for next Mays event now. Keep up the great work and thanks for the flightdeck visit!!

I flew the magnificent VC10 with BUA from TOronto to Gatwick in 1968. Memorable flight. I was inspired by old memories to see what had become of the VC10. Grateful for this visit with the VC10.

Really glad to have come across this site, as it has great meaning for me. My Dad, Alan Burfield, did his apprenticeship with Vickers at Weybridge and moved to Wisley in the early 60s. The account of the VC10 trials are very interesting as he was on the first tropical trial to Jo'burg (and met my mother there!). I'm surprosed, and a little diappointed, that he's not in any of the pictures. As far as I remember he was ground crew/inspector. Sadly he died in 1985 age 50. If anyone remembers him please feel free to get in touch.

G-ARVJ/ZD493 Qatar 1970's

While working at Doha Airport I watched in amazement as the Qatar Police Motorcycle Display Team rode their bikes up the passenger steps on this aircraft and into the passenger cabin, a day later I watched again as they rode their bikes off the aircraft. To surprised to count, but there must have been at least fifteen bikes on board.
