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!

I worked on BOAC's VC10 as an apprentice back in the 1960's. We are hoping to have a reunion this year, our 50th since joining in 1959. Do you know any apprentices who joined BOAC or BEA at that time? Please contact us

Amazing. Just brings back so much memories. First ride early 1960's BOM-BAH. As a very young boy sure helped me make up my mind as to what I wanted to do in my life. My Mom, who is in heaven, absolutely loved the VC-10. Got a chance to look inside the huge cockpit a couple of yrs ago at FLL. RAF had one go thru there. Great job and THANK YOU.

On first 10 Sqn VC10 course, trained by BOAC at Cranebank. Posted as instructor when RAF Redifon 10 Sim installed at Brize. Subsequently took over from Sim Project pilot on his move to the sqn. Am now living close to St Athan & frequently see & hear the RAF 10s as they rotate through for major servicing. Judging by v late delivery from Airbus it is likely that the RAF 10s will have been in service for 50 yrs. Will this be a record???
