Couldn't believe my eyes a few days ago. I saw a VC10 sitting on the tarmac here at Edmonton International. RAF livery. Being from England originally I was always seeing VC10's flying ovwer my Leigh home. Funny, I thought these great old birds had been retired!
Very nice tribute to one of the most graceful and distinctive airliners of all time. It brings back many memories of summer evenings in Mt. Prospect, Ill. where I lived in the flight path of Chicago's O'Hare Airport. BOAC's Super VC-10s had a particular and pronounced roar to them that heralded a departure pattern over my home. I was always quick to grab a pair of binoculars and rush outside to get a good view of one overhead as it winged its way to Montreal and onward to London in the early evening hours.
