Very interesting, ref history of vc10 in Nigeria. I was working in Kano at the time, in fact I had recently returned from uk leave out of H/Row, on one of first flights. if I recall the plane was in N/A livery(grn/wht). also that we had to return a little after take off, with engine problems? fire truck's each side runway! One of our Kano Motor Club friends died on the Lagos flt...Lot's of memories there man.. Flying always seemed a little more "fun" all the same, in those days.

GJD Services has been awarded by BAe the contract for removing from service and disposing of the Royal Air Force's VC10 fleet.

The work will include taking delivery of the aircraft in line with the fleet rundown program, removing assets as required and reducing the aircraft to scrap if required.

I must have first flown on a VC 10 in 1964 when they were introduced on the Nigeria run. I certainly remember them well in the late 1960s. BOAC used to have a junior jet club to which I belonged. I still have my BOAC transistor radio. Last flew on a VC 10 belonging to Gulf Air, maybe 1976 or 77.

Chris, I seem to remember that day well. I was on the ramp at the time. A disco was playing and they had a Guiness truck parked at the runway turn off with a dirty great "Follow Me " sign on the back. It was good to see the squadron back after so long down route. Pints all around, I believe

My father was a test pilot and aeronautical engineer on the vc10. He died, along with 6 other men, when the plane went into a stall, on october 22nd 1963. The location was wiltshire.

Reply: Small correction: that was BAC 1-11 G-ASHG.
