While sitting at work today looking out over the Calgary International Airport, I saw an RAF VC10 taking off. It reminded me of when I was 14 and used to take the train from Wimbledon to Woking and always had my binoculars ready as we would pass the Weybridge airfield. I never had the opportunity of flying in a VC10 but I always loved the design and remember watching its maiden flight on TV. Thanks for a great and interesting site.

I first flew a BOAC VC10 from London to Lagos in 1966. As a 10 y/o, I received a logbook and a set of wings. Another VC10 trip was on East African Airways from Nairobi to Addis Ababa. The pilot had to dip below the clouds to find the airport.

Used to fly regularly on the VC10 to and from Brunei in the mid-70's. Normally and 18 hour flight with two refuelling stops in Middle East & Colombo. Great memories - was on the last VC10 flight to Brunei before the switched to 747's. Great aircraft, many happy memories.

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.
