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.

Greetings...My dad, Joseph Murray, worked at Vickers Armstrong Brookland during the 1950s, his job (as indicated on my birth cert) was "Aircraft supervisor/Progress Chaser". I remember him telling me that he was involved with the VC10 & Barnes Wallis. Can you tell me what my dad's job description would have entailed ? Kind regards...Clive Murray

Flown hundreds of hours on VC10's as my Pa, Jack Dunkley (1913-91) was a Fl/Engineer for BUA/BCAL 1961-78 based in Entebbe, Nairobi & Lusaka.
I still have my treasured Junior Jet Club log book although many unlogged flights from on Viscounts, Dakotas, Comet 1V. Fond memories of 'lollipop' trips in Britannias from EBB to LGW, the fabulous VC10 and finally 707's. First VC10 flight was G-ATDJ from EBB to LGW 1965 & many times on G-ASIW, G-ASIX, G-ATDJ, & G-ASGR.
My godfather was 'Tubbs' Ashby (1907-?1990's) who was a draughtsman at Vickers, Weybridge. He worked on the VC10 amongst others & designed the door on Concorde.
I attended the 'VC10 at 50' celebrations at Brooklands in 2012 & the final VC10 landing at Dunsfold - wouldn't have missed them for the world!
I am a huge fan of the VC10 and love your website. I have a PPL & work for the CAA at Gatwick - what would my Pa think!

I have a particular fondness for this aircraft. I was 6 years old and came to settle in the UK from Kenya on an East African Airways Super VC 10 in December 1967. I'm just looking for an Airfix model of it. Well done for such a magnificent website.

A fantastic aircraft, sadly no more to grace our skies. I clocked up over 3000 hours and many VIP's trips.

Way back in 1964 I was an apprentice at BAC Weybridge. After the mandatory period in the training school, I spent my time building the electrical and electronics in the VC-10. What a privilege. Regards, JohnG.

You have a really interesting website with a a diverse group of contributors-it kept me occupied for a few hours. My affinity with the VC10 comes from my Ground Engineer days on the military CMk1 during the 1980s. Be good to catch up with a y other GEs.
