Used to fly on the Super VC10's between LHR and Bahrain in the 60's when my dad was airport manager of Bahrain airport. Loved flying in those aircraft. Flight attendants handed out card punchout models for the kids. Had my BOAC flight log book and BOAC badges. Was a great time to fly.

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!
