Great site, found it by searching on G-ARTA, I am a big fan of the VC-10 having flown on G-ARTA & G-ASIX in the 70's with Caledonian/BUA. I was also an apprentice with BOAC and spent several months working with both standards & supers. The best four engined airliner we have ever produced, with the possible exception of the 146 (another favorite).Keep up the good work

Suberb site. Out of 33 years in the RAF I spent 25 in engineering on the VC10. Carried out all levels of maintenance from Squadron to Major servicing. Also carried out Proof Pessure Testing from it's commencement Nov 1991 intil 1997. A wonderful aircraft with an enviable track record.

I'm very impressed with this site. The VC10 never received the accolades it was due.
Well Done.

What about the "First" VC-10 Flight Simulator. Delivered to BZN in October 1967. The sim was a bit late in delivery and the RAF were having to pay BOAC 60/hour to use their sim at Cranebank. A King's Ransom.

Being the first full digital simulator it did have teething problems with the Ferranti Argus 3520B Computer with 20k memory words. The computer took 15 minutes to load with five hole paper tape running at 30 inches/sec or 300 chars/sec. A rough calculation will give you 270kBytes in todays money. That's about a quarter of a floppy disc!! My digital camera has 17,000 times the memory capacity.
