Great! My affection for the Vc10 started in the 1960s when we lived in Nigeria. It was my carriage home & also the aircraft we were evacuated on following a coup. I hugely regret that my ‘ BOAC Junior jet club’ book was lost years ago.
Last VC10 I went on was years later , East African’ from UK to Nairobi & back.
Thanks for the site!

What a brill website for a fantastic aircraft .
We used to be held up by VC 10s going to or from school at Changi when the barriers came down over the road .
We went to Singapore on a Brittania and came home in style on a VC 10 👍🏻
We’re You in the RAF ?
Kind regards
Paul .

Very interested to see the VC-10 shots with the hangar door cut-out. I was at EWAU May 85 to Oct 88 and worked on one of the tankers. We installed twin Carousel INS as part of a SRIM (Service Radio Installation Modification). Also worked on a wide range of aircraft installing various secret squirrel stuff. The normal routine was an aircraft would come in, one team (mix of riggers and fairies) would carry out and document the fit as a TI = Trial Installation, including manufacturing the cable runs and any mounting hardware. Once the install was signed off, a separate team would repeat on another aircraft as the PI - Proof Installation. Then we would make the required number of installation kits for the user units to install on the rest of the fleet. Great job, especially when the base was on TACEVAL, we just locked the hangar doors and sat it out.

I've had a love affair with the VC-10 since I first flew in one on 10th December 1969 Brize Norton - Muharraq - Gan - Changi. Over 25 years Army Service and this beautiful aircraft was my passport to the World...Some good, some not so good! I believe my first VC-10 flight was on XV108. The best of British engineering sadly no longer in the skies.
