I first flew in a Super VC10 from Heathrow to JFK in April 1969 with my father. I was just 12 years old and captivated by this most beautiful of all commercial airliners. Again in 1977 I flew to JFK from Manchester, via Prestwick. I remamber sitting at the top of Primrose Hill in London in the 1970's and 1980's watching the wonderful, majestic sight of a VC10 coming in over North London before making the turn westward for finals into Heathrow. Even the Concorde did not make such an impression upon me.

A nostalgic site as the VC-10 was the first aircraft I flew in (London - Frankfurt - Kano - Lagos). Thanks!

Great site for a great era.I grew up in Hong Kong as an Army kid and remember the VC 10 as the most exciting thing I had ever seen.We travelled to and from the UK on Vicsounts and Brittanias and it used to take 2or3 days each way,all going well.The VC 10 was like a spaceship and yes we all got to "fly the plane"while the pilot had a nap. Thaks for a great site

I first flew on a VC10 from Ceylon to Heathrow every school holiday from 1969 to 1973. I was also allowed on occasions to visit the cockpit, which would be unheard of these days. The aircraft holds very many happy memories for me, especially when I saw her at Yeovil air day a few years back.

First flew on a BOAC VC10 when I was 2. At 18, and fresh out of RAF Halton, I was posted onto LSS 'F Troop' heavy rects team (10 Sqn), RAF Brize Norton where I spent 5 years up to my armpits in flap and slat snags and engine changes. In 1997 I went to 1 Sqn, RAF St Athan as an engineering officer where I had the privilege of working with a great team who turned the fortunes of the VC10 major programme around. The VC10 - a beauty in the air and a beast to work on!
