I served in the RAF and flew on 2 VC10's, XV107 from Brize Norton to Ascension Island via Dakar, Senegal. Also XR806 from Guetersloh in Germany to Brize Norton. Great aircraft to fly in.

Thank you for a great web site. i flew as cabin crew for many years,as cabin crew. in fact through to their demise with BA. pity the last flight was not in BOAC colours. that would have been a real cracker to see. my first a/c was GASGC which is now preserved at duxford. makes me feal old. however i do have some stories. if you wish them.
Regards Vikki

I am pleased I found this site regarding the beautiful VC-10.
I recall a trip I took with my family from NY to Bermuda in 1970, and we were fortunate enough to fly on the BOAC VC-10 .This trip was especially memorable to me as a 12 year old kid as, mid-flight, my father made arrangements with the pilots for me to sit in the cockpit for a while. The pilots sat on very thin seats.
They showed me all the instruments and I specially remember the pilot pointing down to a radar screen to the left side of his seat, and I could see the shape of Bermuda approaching.
A great memory and a great airplane.

used to fly these back in the 60's and 70's. A BOAC vc10 in blue and gold livery on an african airfiel at night was a sight that I will never forget

Excellent website, which brought back memories of flying to and from St Lucia in VC10s in the early seventies. I have a few photos somewhere of those days, and will dig them out and send them sometime, together with a bit of a spiel about the very basic facilities at Hewanorra when it opened up to the four engine jobs.
