We building a computer model for the IL2
Flight Sim War Game Your site has been an enormous help in searching for information, images etc. No examples in Australasia. So we are unable to view the real thing. Thank you very much

I spent 3 years at Brize Norton working in the RAF VC10 and did the VC10 Aerosystems course. My father was a Captain on 10 Sqn at the time, which operated the VC10.

I witnessed the unloading of Freddie Lakers Rolls Royce at Entebbe (where I incidentally had learned to fly). The furniture had been stripped out of the VC10 First Class cabin section. I flew back to UK (Gatwyck) via Nairobi, spending part of the flight with the crew in the cockpit. I was later part of the development test team on the Concorde project at Hawker Siddeley Dynamics in Hatfield.

Hi, just came across this and have been reading the wing design bit with interest. I was an apprentice at Weybridge 1966 to '72 so helped build the VC10s. I worked in the tunnels and in Fluid Motion Group before and after Cranfield (it was all National High Lift, BAC311 and Europlane by then). One thing that puzzled me...seen in the tunnels but never explained, was the VC10 3D wing with saw tooth cut-outs on the rear wing surface. Any idea what they were up to? Weybridge was in a bad place when I came back from Cranfield so I left...to the RAE and then finding my way back into Industry. VC10s....there are so many stories about Weybridge!
