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.

What a super site. Apprentice 'fitter erector' at Vickers Weybridge from 64 to 69 and stayed on until the last east African 10 flew off. Then to BOAC / BA until 1986, spent 11 years on permanent nights on D checks. Now with Emirates Airline in Dubai. Had a vist from a RAF 10 last month, did the hairs stand up or what !!

What a great site>
I fell in love with the VC10 when my family moved to Brentford in '69 and I saw this beautiful airliner for the first time. Spent many a happy summer holiday spotting the VC10 at Heathrow.
But I have been lucky in that I have been to Alvescot and spent a week or too running into the garden to see these still beautiful craft flying in and out of Brise Norton.

Keep up the good work

I have very good and fond memories of RAF Brize Norton.
I was stationed there from January, 1957 until November, 1958 when I was with the USAF Stategic Air Command.
We lived in older 1 story 10 men huts near the end of one runway. I happen to be back in the UK about 14 years ago and I was able to get onto Brize with a 1 day pass. I relived my 17 months there with joy. I remeber entering my barracks and being greeted by a RAF paratrooper. I went to the part of the barracks where my bunk was located and that really brought back memories.
Do you have any pictures of Brize other than the aircraft and hangar pictures?
Does the former Officer's quarters building still exist?
I am trying to put together an album of my USAF history for my children and grandchildren.
Thank you for maintaining this site.
