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

My old man was an air force chief technician for 101sqn RAF at Brize between 84 and 1991. My earliest memories were waking up hearing the conways being tested on test ramps, and falling asleep wondering where the ones I had just heard were taking this beautiful bird.

I remember distinctly waiting for 2 hours on the pan at Brize waiting for Dad to return from the 1st Gulf War, and watching these beauties circle in to land to the theme of Top Gun.

I am so proud to have such a strong connection to the most fantastic plane to have flown the skies of Oxfordshire. I am truly upset to know that these planes will be replaced by such a popular aircraft.

Long live the VC-10, you will always have a my first memories.

Chris.
