Always loved the VC10, It was the first jet aircraft I flew on in 1971 as an ATC cadet (XR810) I subsequently fley on most of the RAF fleet at the time. I will add some photo's whem I can dig them out.

Great site and great detail. I saw the first arrival of G-ARVA at Aden when it arrived for trials in 1962/63. Also I flew on one of the last passenger BA flights from Gatwick in 1981 in G-ASGF. I have some photos of both events and will send them in with some words for your perusal and inclusion on your site if you think they are good enough.

What a wonderful web site - did a lot of miles in XV102 and XV109 during my time in the RAF (always seemed to be 102 or 109 ?) Lot of memories of RAF Muharraq and the departing "Moon Rocket" which shook the tin hut I was in to the rivets..! and a few trips to Ascension Island 1982/3 on my way further south. Stunning aircraft and way ahead of it`s time, it will always have a place in my heart - it took me to and brought me back from some strange places (I always got Brittanias before that! so it was like space travel in comparison...) It will be a sad day when they are retired :(

I lived in Freeport, Bahamas, during the early 1970s. Hanging out at the airport was a favorite passtime among the ex-pats and families. Seeing a BOAC VC-10 land, taxi in, park, then later load, taxi out, and take off was always a highlight. The dark blue with the gold speedmark really was a standout! At the BOAC office in FPO they had a model VC-10 that must have had a 10 foot wingspan! Incredible detail, with a cut-away on the side so you could see every seat and interior detail. As a kid I wanted that big model SO BAD! I wonder where it is now???? Fabulous site!!!!!
