As an eighteen year old apprentice at Vickers, South Marston, Swindon I had the job of drilling rivet holes in the leading edge slats of the VC10 for six months. Not the most taxing of jobs but by golly with the judicious use of the "windy" drill it certainly helped to increase the pay packet due to the bonus system in place. Living in Swindon I still see the odd VC10 around and tell the grandchildren that grandad worked on that plane. Unfortunately it does not mean as much to them as it does to me! Always thought that if they had re-engined it with a RR version it may have held its own but politics as always got in the way of the UK aircraft industry.

As a recently retired turbine aerodynamicist from GE, I especially appreciate the aerodynamic design of the VC10. My Dad was a Line Maintenance Manager for BOAC/BA during the '60s & '70s, and I had the pleasure of flying the VC10 on many trips to Trinidad and other places. Thanks for this excellent web site dedicated to a remarkable aircraft & to those who designed, manufactured, flew and maintained it.

I agree Sandy "Vicky" is still a beautiful lady at 50. Didn't we have some wonderful times flying in her. It will be a sad day when she no longer graces the sky. At least we still have 10 Sqn reunions to recall happy days."Kick the tyres,light the fires,jazz the fans, clear the cans,lets roll"

I have just returned home from a very good RAF 10 Sqn Reunion - The VC10's have now been flying for 50years - not too many a/c can boast about that length of time. RAF ex 10 Sqn Members why not join the Association to keep the memory of the VC10 alive. To all 'Take care'

used to work in design office Weybridge, as weights engineer at end of 5yr. apprenticeship.
last jobs before leaving end of 1954 were on skin of forward fuselage & main spar of inner wing that carried the 2 engines; this last was too damned heavy!!
G.R.E. hated the idea of engines hanging out under wings.
