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.
