I was on the VC10 (noted on this website in the incidents section) that flew from London to Beirut flight MEA 202 on Saturday 28 Dec 1968 and that after landing was sadly blown up by the Israelis.
It had Middle East Airlines livery but was owned by and leased from Ghana Airways from what I remember.
Is there anyone on this board who was also on that flight or has input on this incident?

I have just spent nearly 2 hours reading everything on this site. Not a minute was wasted as I am such a fan of Vicky10.

Well done Jelle.

Don,t know what got me thinking about Uncle Basil (Peyton) last night but wanted to find out what really happened on the VC10 approaching Lagos. Thank you. I know Mum and Dad will want to know too as there was so much speculation at the time.

Great site, brings back memories. I flew in VC10's numerous times in the 60's and early 70's between London and the Middle East. Last time was from Cairo to London in 1978 (I think). I was a little surprised to see an RAF VC10 in Calgary a few years ago. One time I was a passenger in a DH104 Dove following a VC10 on approach into Dubai. We circled somewhere over the final approach and had a grandstand view as the VC10 passed underneath us and landed.

My first two trips to the UK back in 1971 and 1972 were on VC-10's, and after 53 more crossings on 707's, 747's,DC-10's, L-1011's, 767's, A330's, and A340's, no trips are as memorable as those in these superb British aircraft. If you've never flown in a VC-10, you just can't understand!

Thank you for keeping this great great aircraft's history and legacy on the web. I hope that as the RAF's VC10 get replaced one of these aircraft will make it to the Udvar-Hazy Center of the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum. I would like to see it next to the 707 and have this chapter in aviation history added to the exhibit. Keep up the good work!

Great site, many happy memories of flying on VC10's from LHR to Brunei in the mid-70s - Long long flight 18 hours normally, with two refuelling stops. Was on the last VC10 to Brunei before the 747 took over. Fab photo, brings back lots of memories.
