Having just recovered from the recent 26th Annual Reunion of The RAF 10 Squadron Association Reunion at Brize Norton I have decided that it is time once again to give details of how to become a Member of the Association.

You can do this by contacting me at the following postal and email addresses.

Peter Wentworth, Secretary 10 Squadron Association, 3 Maple Road, Faringdon, Oxon SN7 8BD

or

peter@milehighmagic.co.uk

If you are a former 10 Squadron Crew Member and are in contact with any of your former colleagues then I would ask you to get into contact with them and urge them to join us. Thank you

I enjoyed a trip on a VC10 from Brisbane east over the Pacific one night in the early 1970's after often watching them at Brisbane airport. In those days if you asked nicely the captain would be pleased to entertain you on the flight deck. After dinner we were escorted to the flight deck and received warmly. That night I had an experience that I will never forget. The first thing observed and unexpected was the old fashioned navigation with the navigator, navigating with a sextant through the bubble in the roof. And then looking out through the windscreen the night was so dark outside that the nose cone of the aircraft was not even visible. It was just as if the crew had drawn a black blind down over the windscreen! That experience instilled within me a huge confidence in the skills of those men in command of that great flying machine.

I spent over two years 1970 - 1972 as an air steward on 10 Sqdn and this website bought back many happy memories of those fun filled years.
sad to see that this wonderful aircraft has been retired.

Some time ago I left a guestbook entry that my father Tony Frish was the captain of G-ASGL in 12/74 when it had the famous fuel starvation total power failure and was saved by use of the ELRAT. My dad passed away peacefully on 8/5/10 (the 65th anniversary of VE (Victory in Europe) day from WW2). He flew Lancs in the war and joined BOAC in 1946, retiring from the VC10 in June '75. At his memorial service, I could think of no more fitting tribute for his final departure than the recording I made from the jump seat of G-ASGO on 21/12/72 as he flew it out of JFK. It worked well as a tribute to an amazing man and career. We also had my 7 foot long travel agent model of a Super there in the church! If any of you folks had anything to do with my father and can feedback on it, I'd be delighted to hear from you. The VC10 is the most magnificent aircraft. Best regards to you all, Andy Frish

Just returned from a wonderful 10 Sqn reunion at BZN. It was good to see so many old friends and talk over those happy days on this beautiful aircraft. Wish I was 21 again!!!! I was a Loadmaster on 10 Sqn from 1966 to 1971
