Found the site while looking for old colleagues from Brooklands and Wisley. Was a Vickers/BAC EngineerApprentice 1959 to 1964 and Flight Test Engineer 1964-1966. Worked on VC10 landing gears in the Cathedral and later at Wisley in Flight Test on G-ARTA and G-ASGG. Many happy hours as self loading freight late 1960s- early 70s.

Great site, Marking one of the most beautiful aircraft to ever of graced the skies of earth, The VC10 Has realy catched my heart and imagenation. Shes a work of art. Shes our concorde moment Irraplacable, Nothing will ever beat the sound of 4 Rolls Royce Conway jets. Its like they choose only the best melodys by using a tuning fork, Nothing will ever be anyware near as beautiful as this bird was. VC10 We love you.

Brilliant site aswell people, Keep up the good work, Youre marking one of the most beautiful aircraft to have ever graced the skies of earth.

Keep up the good work.

Despite having made over 400 flights as a passenger on commercial aircraft, I will always remember my first (42 years ago) on G-ARVH and those on G-ARVB and G-ASGF/P/R. What a beautiful airplane! As a schoolboy I was lucky to visit Brooklands as a guest of BAC on a cold winter's day and to see close up the final Super VC10 before her maiden flight and later delivery to EAA. What memories!

I flew the VC10 with the RAF from 1978 to 1993 when I retired. This looks as though it could be a very interesting site.
