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!

I grew up in Dorset, and as a plane enthusiast, was often taken to Hurn Airport to watch the planes. I remember the Air Malawi VC10 parked out on the apron, I was always fascinated by it. My dad knew a man who worked at Hurn Airport, and one day he arranged for me to go with him out on to the apron to see the old jets that were parked. I ended up climbing up into the Air Malawi VC10, and sitting in the cockpit. It was a real thrill for a young boy, and I remember it to this day!

It's lovely to see G-ASGC in the BA Christmas ad as it's the very first plane I ever flew on, in 1969, on a one hour Ian Allan pleasure flight. On different VC10s I subsquently did another Ian Allan pleasure flight followed by a return transatlantic flight to the States in 1970. The VC10 is a gorgeous plane and has never been beaten for it's beautiful looks.

I was invited on a test flight during the test flights in Johannesburg in Jan 1965 by my friend Colin Donaldson and others. I also made friends with the crew working on the test flights of the BAC1-11 during the same period.
