really interesting site.I still work on vcx.I repair and overhaul the power flight control units. good old vcx has paid for my house and all i own. A couple of years ago I was lucky enough to fly in one from R.A.F.Brize norton we refueled a eurofighter over scotland I have some brilliant photo's and memories of the day
I was involved with the C Mk 1's from 1966 when they entered service with the RAF until 1990's when the last one was converted to a C Mk 1 (K) at Hurn. Beautiful aircraft to fly in and work with. Miss the old girl.
