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
