I was a RAF Loadmaster on the VC10. XR808 has gone to Bruntingthorpe and sold. She is going to be used for Taxi Runs at air shows. There is another VC10 at Newquay Airport for the museum. They are hoping to preserve another VC10 at Cosford but the runway is rather short for her to be flown in, perhaps taken by road. The last one will be scrapped unless someone is willing to buy her. This will need to happen very quickly as she is due to be scrapped this month - sorry

On Vc10s in the blue and gold BOAC livery there are two black bumps on the top of the fuselage. What were they for?

I often dip in and out of this excellent website, more frequently of late as end of service approaches. Watching the VC10 depart from Fairford this year was tinged with sadness and for my mother this will mark the end of 37 years of VC10 window watching. Hopefully the MoD won't come knocking on the door to reclaim the double glazing they funded all those years ago!
Sadly I won't see the unique and graceful shape take to the air for the last time on the 25th September as I'll be on a ubiquitous Airbus but I'll find rime to mourn the roar of the Conway four.

I worked on the rear fuselage section in hangar B1 at Brooklands, being involved with all of the VC10s constructed there up until 1966. The happiest days of my life and so proud to have been part of the team which built such a beautiful machine! Have been to Duxford many times and happily scrutinised some of my handiwork! Does anyone remember me from those days? If so please get in touch before I go the way of my beautiful VC10s to the scrapyard in the sky! Or will it be to Coley`s scrapyard along with the TSR2? Brilliant site which I am enjoying immensely! Thank you!

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!
