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

Flew back from Nigeria (as a little boy) in July 1967 on a BOAC VC-10 and then again to Belize and Cyprus with the RAF. Fantastic experience to be allowed to sit in the jump seat for landing and take-off at Washington. So British it brings a tear to the eye
