I had the great honour to serve on ten Squadron from 1978-1981 and 1984-1986 as an air steward a truly magnificent aircraft, and now so sad to see them being broken up.
Many happy memories down route on the Hong Kong slip etc.
Now working for Virgin Trains, and had the privelage of flying in a VC10 of 101 sqn for the naming of one of our Pendolinos which is named after this sqn, how lucky was that!
Great website thanks.

An pilot on 10 Sqn from 67 to 74, with the later years as flight commander training. Wonderful memories of the Iron Duck: standing on the golf course at Gan watching her lifting her nose higher and higher to eventually slip away from the runway, and who can forget that magic blue note of four conways reaching full power.

VC10 Captain and Flt Cdr Ops No.10 Sqn (86-94). My log books are in storage but I think about 4,000 hrs on the greatest aircraft ever. Absolute sacrilege that they have pained all my beautiful shiny 10s some awful sludge colour and closed down the Royal Air Force’s airline.

This morn in Calgary I was alerted to a sound which could only be a large, old jet. Looking out the window, a VC10 taking off. A wonderful and nostalgic site. I was last on a VC10, a RAF one with the seats facing backwards, in 1980. Good to see one still flying.

The VC 10s are worth remembering. They are the most safe Aircraft that were ever made. It is fun to fly in them, like I did as a stewardess in EAA. Can all pilots around the world plot to bring these beautiful aircraft back.
Long live the VC 10s.

Mary
