I grew up in Dorset, and as a plane enthusiast, was often taken to Hurn Airport to watch the planes. I remember the Air Malawi VC10 parked out on the apron, I was always fascinated by it. My dad knew a man who worked at Hurn Airport, and one day he arranged for me to go with him out on to the apron to see the old jets that were parked. I ended up climbing up into the Air Malawi VC10, and sitting in the cockpit. It was a real thrill for a young boy, and I remember it to this day!

It's lovely to see G-ASGC in the BA Christmas ad as it's the very first plane I ever flew on, in 1969, on a one hour Ian Allan pleasure flight. On different VC10s I subsquently did another Ian Allan pleasure flight followed by a return transatlantic flight to the States in 1970. The VC10 is a gorgeous plane and has never been beaten for it's beautiful looks.

I was invited on a test flight during the test flights in Johannesburg in Jan 1965 by my friend Colin Donaldson and others. I also made friends with the crew working on the test flights of the BAC1-11 during the same period.

I was a VC10 stewardess from the very beginning when field trials started with BOAC until Nov 70. It was a wonderfully impressive aircraft to fly in - steady as a rock.

Doing a study for US FAA and looking at the Addis Ababa mishap. I needed the wheelbase for a calculation. You had it, thank you.

Does anyone recall a 1960's cinema ad for the VC10? I was one of the most beautiful commercials with the aircraft cruising into the sunset and jet streams. Wonder if it can be located.

My father worked on the VC10's when they first came in and to this day, are his favourite aircraft. He turns 86 next Sunday and is starting to suffer from Dementia. Thanks to your website, I am able to bring him back a whole load of memories and take him back to a time he loved and will never lose. I am eternally grateful to you!

Great to read about ZD241 which I flew on in 2006. I tried to email you with photos of that flight but your address bounced back to me.
