Gary and all other workers on BOB. I flew in her many times as an ALM from Brize Norton. I tried many times talking the CAS into moving her to Cosford. The reply - there is already a VC10 there - "But it's a civi one!" was my reply. Well done! I am the Secretary of the 10 Squadron Association and when she is re assembled I will certainly try to organise a visit. Thank you all....:

Very nice site, I do agree an overlooked aircraft in the annals of British aviation.

I grew up in Surrey in a house right under the flight path into Weybridge so having the test VC-10s, and 111s, coming right over the roof at quite low altitudes was not unusual - I'm pretty certain the pilots used the house as an IP!!

I only ever flew on a -10 twice, to and from Seychelles, remember it as a very comfortable experience.

Thanks for the time taken over the site.

Cheers

Just got wind of a new VC10 publication by Key pubs...search engine found this link too (Comment: There's a clarity of thinking on this site that deserves mention..Thank You !).

I once lofted the left upper o/b VC10 wing surfaces, as a Vickers Apprentice. The VC10 was the first Vickers attempt at a "clean" (unobstructed) wing and remnants of Barnes-Wallis' Dirigeable Processes and people (Iterative calculations between people..a sort of human computer) were invoked to take advantage of the aerodynamic opportunity. It seems to have worked

But in spite of competative constraints, the VC10 could not have been put to a better service than it was, I submit. Both for the benefit of a transitional colonial society, and the enduring demands of Military use, in peace and war. We can be dang proud of it.

(Now: I wonder where my tooling went??)

A great plane...travelled on most of the BOAC/BA fleet as schoolboy from LHR-BDA-NAS.
Once the B747 took over, it was never the same...never forget the whine of the RR Conways spooling up on takeoff
