Spent several years in Zambia , flying with the BOAC VC10 from Heathrow to Lusaka. Can anyone remember the VC10 that was held up on the ground in Entebbe over a " Diplomatic Incident" We spent a night in a hotel in Entebbe and flew out the next day on another airline's VC10 to Lusaka.
Former 1970's ATC Cadet who enjoyed many flights in the Brize based VC10's. I have loved the VC10 from that time, and realise, in hindsight how lucky we were to have the freedom to "hitch a lift" on so many fine aircraft..We will not see those times again..
I flew BOAC VC10 lax/syd w/stop in hnl/nandi I believe winter of 1969 or 70. Most comfortable except passing over Equator. In flt service (Y) excellent. I did see a PAA 747 at Nandi. I just remember upon arr in Nandi with such zeal ground immigration sprayed the cabin while we were still seated. Was able to leave a/c for about 1hr. Many thanks for site. I retired from NW.
