An amazing site.
Always been keen on commercial airliners and have at this stage flown aboard almost every type. But for some reason the VC10 remains distinct!
Had just one trip (wish I knew the tail number!)
BOAC, London to Singapore in Nov 1971 on way to New Zealand.
We stopped at several places which made the flight much more of an adventure. Unlike todays "One stop Auckland-London"
Could not compare it with much at the time as I had only been on one other airliner - a BAC 1-11. But I do recall the smoothness and comfort and the wonderful service by the cabin staff
The views of the Himalayas as we flew over India were stunning and I remember them as if it were just yesterday.
Well done on a great site for a grand aeroplane

Interesting site bringing back lots of memories to a 1960's junior Jetclub member!
As well as the professionalism/decorum from all the BOAC cabin crew at the time, whatever class you flew, (sadly no longer the case with BA) I remember my first flight (flying back from Hong Kong on an RAF VC10) via Gan? island in the Indian Ocean.
Later, when my father was posted to St Lucia we flew the BOAC Super VC10 Heathrow to Antigua route and on take off from Bermuda or Antigua the overhead air conditioning unit would always leak and drip all over the place keeping the cabin crew busy for a while.
Nice site. Thank you

Found you from links at scottish crash sites. I'm interested 'cos I was slightly involved with the process of introducing the K2 & K3 tankers.

The VC-10 is my favorite airliner. When I was a boy, I used to fly the BOAC route from JFK-MBJ (New York City to Montego Bay, Jamica) a few times a year with my family. The VC-10 in the BOAC Livery has to be the most elegant looking passenger aircraft ever produced. I miss the old speedbird!

I did 3 tours as an Aircraft Electrical Engineer on RAF VC10s (10 Sqdn) at Brize Norton in the 70s and was looking at the History page and was surprised to see a sepia photo of a VC10 with Prince Charles. The surprise was that the person third from the left is me!! The odd thing is that I don't remember the photo being taken. The trip was to take Prince Charles to the Independant Celebrations in Fiji. It was a great trip,we circumnavigated the world twice, once out to drop him off and then round again to pick him up.
