I joined BOAC in Sep69; frequent flyers, usually Americans would moan that the VC10 was slower than the 707. 'Ah yes, but quality before quantity...' and give them a [pre-decimal currency] threepenny bit (coin with 12 sides). 'Balance it on a 707's armrests, in flight...' Impossible; then we'd say, 'then do it on a VC10' (very possible) and sell them the smoother, quieter ride. Never mind the 'basket-weave' interiors! Class always shows - great website.

worked for BAe in the 80's. Worked on the tanker conversion program and remember the tail spar incident. What has not been mentioned is the loss of a hose reel over wales in the early part of the 80's whilst testing ZA141.(landed on a welsh farm) sad to hear that the K2's are now scrapped. It was a nice aircraft but had its testing time whilst doing the conversion mod. After this worked on the F111 (another aircratf that has been moth balled and scrapped). Nice site with plenty of info.

Was lucky enough to get a Family Day ride on XV107 this weekend. Flew from BZZ up to Hull and past over Humberside Airport at 300 feet before flying back down the east coast to Norfolk before heading inland and back to rainy Oxfordshire. This was my 1st flight on a VC10 in over 30 years - and there's not too many aircraft you can say that about! The flight was as smooth and solid as I remember from my childhood, and the power and speed set the VC10 apart as a real thoroughbred among aircraft. And that wonderful noise!
I've also won a bid to fly out on '10 with 3 friends on a refuelling sortie. While her days may be numbered, the VC10 is a testament to the superb design and engineering of all those at Weybridge.
