Just managed to see the last flyby of one these magnificent machines at St Athan. Wonderful sight and the crackling roar of those four Conways is unforgetable. Sad day but at least I have memories of the 'good old days' at Brize Norton, as does my ex 10 'loadie' wife Chris.

We were lucky to see this bad boy land and taxi at Waddington airshow in Lincolnshire, England July 2013. Was a great site and it taxi-ed by us and we got jet blasted by the engines for a couple of minutes whilst they moved an ice cream van so it could get in!! Ha Ha happy days. I was made aware of this video via my twitter account that showed the footage of the actual day. Hope you enjoy, it's good.
Sad to see her go. sniff!

As a 17 year old captivated by Aviation, The VC10 stands head, shoulders and T-tail above the rest as my favorite aircraft. I think the noise it makes during landing (the scream) easily surpasses a Vulcan Howl. I volunteer quite a lot at Brooklands, where I work on A40-AB, so I'm quite privileged to work in the only live (ish!) static VC-10 cockpit in the world. I am counting down with dread until the VC10 gets retired in September. It is my life's ambition to fly on one, but that is looking more and more unlikely. Whatever happens, I will go to my grave with the VC10 in my heart and mind.

I joined the workforce at Fliton to work on these conversions on leaving the RAF in 1980. Worked with some great people and ended up on the second induction before leaving Filton in 97. Good days and thanks for a well written article.

I flew the VC10 from 1967 until her demise. Words can never express the love her pilots had for her, No aeroplane will ever have the same impact. You asked her to do the impossible and she would do it.
