Fantastic Aircraft. BOAC VC10 BA788/540 15thJanuary 1968 Arrived in Colombo Ceylon (Sri Lanka Now), from Heathrow , Transiting ,Kuwait and Bombay, with an missing engine cowling , that grounded the aircraft in Colombo for two days , untill a cowling was delivered from Hong Kong on a diverted VC10. The Captain on the Flight was Capt. Hart Lovelace . All the Transit Passengers,from all over the world, including , Shirley and Moss Cass with their two daughters , Moss was a MP from Victoria Australia and a British Diplomat from Kuwait. All these passengers were treated to an all expense paid Mini-tour of Ceylon,accomodated at the Colonial Queens Hotel In Kandy.
The BOAC Manager at the time was PEG Lawrence with John Vaughn as the Airport Manager.
I was a Operation Officer in Colombo for BOAC, GREAT AIRLINE !

The Whisper Jet spoiled me. Noise reducing headphones hadn't yet been marketed, but weren't needed! Oh, how I miss a quiet flight. (One more 5000km flight on an American AIrlines 757 -- with CRT monitors over the aisle -- and I'll go crazy.)

The VC10 has to be one of the most graceful jetliners ever made. Have happy memories of the BOAC and Ghana Airways 10s 'curcuit bashing' Stansted, back in the 60s They used to pass over our place at around 2,000 ft. I've had 2 flights on an IL62, but sadly, never a VC10.

Is it true that they are going to scrap GASGC at duxford ... this was the A/C i did my supernumery flight on when i joined BOAC...i would rather see a Concorde scraped before a beautifull lady like this

Reply: As far as we know now this is not the plan. The DAS is not planning to scrap aircraft, this rumour keeps turning up every few months though.
