Hi,
I have many fond memories of the VC10.
I was on the last VC10 service to Brunei before it switched to a 747 en route to Australia. Wondered whether anyone has any photos or records of that last VC10 to Brunei, or knows which VC10 it was that operated?
Thanks

My father was Harry Zeffert. All of the wonderful comments on this blog give great credence to a great aircraft, and the people in Weybridge who designed, built and tested the VC10. I am 50 years on I am still proud of my fathers accomplishments on Viscount, VC10, 1-11, TSR-2 and the Concorde. Thanks you for a wonderful web site.

Flew for EAA 1070 to the collapse.
Was Fleet Captain of the DHC6, DC#, F27 and DC9 fleets. East Africa Was a wonderful place and the fleet structure was great. The Crews were great, the Cabin Staff were great but the directors let us all down and the Airline collapsed. John

We flew to Hong Kong from Brize in 1975 (3 year tour), I was only 5 at the time and would love to know what the duration of the flight was in those days and whether we had a stop over.

I was in the Weybridge Design Office as a Draughtsman from 1967 to 1982. I was a bit late for the VC10 though, I worked on the One Eleven, Concorde and then MRCA/Tornado. Started off in the Mech & Fluids DO under Norman Barnes, then the Electrics DO under Charlie Ryman.

I flew the VC10 with BOAC/BA from 1968 until 1978 and the site brings back many memories.
My father, Capt Ronald Hartley was killed in the Lagos crash whilst travelling out to Lagos take up the post of Flt Ops Director with Nigerian Airways.
I had flown with him as his co-pilot on his retirement trip from BOAC just a few weeks before.
A sad end to his career and the start of mine.
