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
