Flew the VC-10 in 1972 (BOAC) on return trip to Scotland. Wonderful Aircraft, glad to see that its not being "lost" to History.

I was just surfing the internet for my names sake, Kenneth Campbell. I am an African American born in 1953 to my mother Scellerstine Campbell, St. Louis Mo., USA.

My mother was Born in 1935 - (1984), St. Louis mo., and she never met her father nor any Campbell's from this side of her lineage.
I have never met anyone from my mother's side of Campbell relatives.

It's ironic that I served in the U.S. Air force in 1972 & Kenneth Campbell of the VC10 was also a servant in the Air Force.

I am not sure, but this last name might have been one of a slave owner whose last name was Campbell that eventually named the descendants of my mother.

... Kind of heart wrenching and sad that she did not know where her last name derived. I have thought about changing my last name, at least to give my daughter some kind of historical identity. And the more I think about it, it seems to be the best thing.

The VC10 was my first jet aircraft. I flew her with BOAC for thirteen years. I got my command on her for half of that. When we lost them I flew the Tristar for another 13 years. The VC10 was unique, You could trust her absolutely, she would respond to anything you asked of her. A priviledge and a thrill to have flown her.

Looking for old friend Carol Affleck who used to be cabin crew for BOAC.
If any one can help - please contact me. As a regular flyer throughout the 60s and 70s I loved the old VC10, and felt personnaly betrayed when it was replaced with the non-flyer friendly 747s

Great site Jelle, and a great British aeroplane I remember well tools at the ready for 10 turn-arounds at RAF Gan 1971-72, got some super 8 footage somewhere of them departing and arriving. It was memorable riding the jump seat back to BZN for my de-mob at Valley. Long in the tooth ex-C208 African flying doctor pilot available for VC10 crewing - mobile and available still got the SASF VC10 tie do I qualify? Will even do bog duty...again!

I just love to fly, always dreamed of being a pilot! Never pursued it hard enough, but now my vision won't pass for a license! Awesome site Jelle! I remember seeing the VC10 at IAD as a teenager visiting my sister outside of Washington D.C. Peace and good luck!
