What a brilliant site!

I worked as a WRAF ALM on VC10s from 1969 - 1972 and then in Bahrain with Gulf Air from 1974 - 1975. Loved the aircraft and have many happy memories - worked with some super people in the air and on the ground!

Dear Sir,

This site flood back my memories way back to 1969 and 1971. I travel by an RAF VC10 from Singapore to RAF Brize Norton to attend my 2 year apprenticeship in Aircraft Fitter Electrics at RAF Halton and travel back to Malaysia in 1971 via Singapore 2 years later. I cannot find any other sleek and tenderfull aircraft with it's four engines at the back. I still remember that the seating configuration on an RAF VC10 is backward facing.
Thanks.
Regards.

Sunbathing last week (June 8th ish). Heard this loud thunder above. To my amazement saw a VC 10 at about 2,000 feet flying from West to East above me.I live SW of Selby. N.Yorkshire...This has prompted me to sign in. I flew in a RAF Transport Comannd VC10 in 1966 from Singapore to RAF Lynham. Managed to get into the cockpit and the pilot signed the flight menu.I still have it somewhere. Will sign in again when I find it. It has the flight details on it.Dave White

Delighted to have eyeballed all this assorted VC10 clutter! My father Tony, now nearly 89, still lives with us. He retired from BA's VC10 fleet in June '75. He had the total power failure incident aboard G-ASGL in December '74 over the South China sea and subsequently personally thanked Harry Zeffert who designed the ELRAT which saved them on that occasion. Last VC10 we saw in Adelaide was XR808. The VC10 is held in higher esteem by all who come into contact with it than any other aircraft type I can think of. The wailing banshee sound of those Conways taxiing and the deafening noise and smoke trail of the take off really epitomised the 1960s and 70s. The Peter Pan in me wants to go back and stay there!! Thanks so much for providing this sensational tribute to such a magnificent looking and superbly over-engineered masterpiece!

Someone out there has the craziest photograph.68/69 RAF Vc10 30000 ft must have been near Vietnam.An American Phantom pulled alongside and stayed quite a while waving and wiggling around.There may have been two of them.Somebody got the pictures.Just wonder if they are out there somewhere
