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.

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!
