My father was assigned to 10 Squadron as aircrew in the early 1970's and the VC 10 was the first aircraft I ever flew on. The site is excellent and you have a done a brilliant job putting it together

This site brings back many memories for me I was an apprentice at Vickers Armstrong from 1957 to 1962. All the picture s you have of the assembly of the aircraft I know well. The color pictures of the aircraft in the (Cathedral) Assembly Hanger were taken one Sunday morning. We were all called into work to tidy up before the pictures were taken from the overhead crane.
I am very proud to say I worked on the VC 10 and like every person that worked at that factory there was a real sense of pride and achievement when that aircraft rolled down that runway for the first time.

What an interesting and well built site. I was particularly interested in 7Q-YKH and its history and found it here. A sad ending. But my recollection of YKH was a one hour flight in her at around the time it was at Gatwick for maintainance. The flight was arranged by a group known as Rays Air Travels and was for enthusiasts. A very pleasant hour on board. I do have a model of it so a fond memory.

I used to fly on the BOAC VC-10 from Lima in Peru to London in the mid 60's. Ever since I fell in love with such a lovely airplane. I have fond memories of such a quiet interior.
