Hello, I flew on the VC-10 (my favorite aircraft) many times. My father was with Imperial Airways/BOAC/British Airways, 1936-1976, as aircrew (navigator) and finally Airport Mngr, Dulles. During a cocktail reception at Detroit, a number of guests were invited aboard a "new" VC-10. While aboard the aircraft, our considerably large group had moved to the rear (why I don't know, I was only 16) when a ground crew member came in and, in a panic, ushered our group to the front and even into the very cramped cockpit. The aircraft had become "tail heavy" and was apparently threatening to settle down on it's "rear"!!! A "U" shaped cradle was placed under the fuselage after which our party disembarked the aircraft. A true VC-10 "tale". Great site, thanks, Jeff
