Hi
My name is Brent Gazzaniga and way back then I worked as a copy writer for Garland Compton a London Ad Agency. My client was BOAC and I wrote the line Try a little VC Tenderness. I also wrote..Hush Hour Travel and London to New York 4 Hours at a Stretch which featured the extended leg room. Now in my 70's I was looking back over my career and stumbled on your web site. Thanks for the memory.
Brent

What a great site, well researched and a great source of original information on one of my favourite aircraft. I was lucky enough to travel on an RAF VC10 in 2008, and even though it was 40 years old it felt like the future. We could wander about freely, and I spent time in the cockpit with the crew, which was no problem because the cockpit was huge and easily accommodated six people, five seated. I remember asking whereabouts we were and the navigator telling me "Approximately northern Italy". Very much enjoyed reading it and keep up the good work.

Was conducting a search for the VC-10 in BOAC livery. I want to thank you for your VC-10 tribute site. Still scanning it, but I am sure it will be enjoyable. Great work, and best of luck in your future endeavours.

I remember when I was at RAF Gan in the '70's. Our barrack block was a matter of a few hundred yards from the end of the runway. Most mornings, about 4 am I think the trooping VC10's used to give us one heck of a shaking when the Conway's were cranked up to full power! The whole building used to vibrate including the occupants! Mind you I used to love hearing them coming from the apron to line up. Lovely howling and wailing noises as the lined up ready for the off. I've been a VC10 nut/anorak ever since with stacks of books etc etc on them. Gorgeous, just gorgeous aircraft.

My first flight on a Super VC-10 was in April 1976 to the Seychelles (Mahe') via Nairobi and Dar-Es-Salaam.
Excellent flight to the Seychelles and stayed at the Northolme Hotel and then the Coral Strand located on the incredible Beau Vallon Bay Beach.

Flight BA061 LHR/NBO/DAR/SEZ
Crew change in Seychelles
BA037A/SEZ/CMB/HKG/HND (Tokyo) Japan.
Beautiful flight, excellent inflight-service!
