    I flew on those a few times pre 9/11. After that the super security measures made it harder to get a jolly. They had terrific acceleration but were fined everywhere they went because of the noise. I can sleep through a thunderstorm but one of those taking off fully loaded woke me every time. I was still sad to see them go though.

        I flew in VC10'S a lot and it always seemed strange to sit facing backwards. It was, to me, a great aircraft and was very quiet inside due to the jets being to the rear and the flights were so smooth we used to balance pennies on edge on the table to see how long they stayed up....which was usually pretty long.

            Not for me, Pal. My neighbour is a model airplane "nut" and has a collection of all, and I do mean all, of the civil airline aircraft going back 20 years including the VC10 in BOAC, RAF, East African an d Middle East air line colours.

                Sorry buddy - I would partner it up with our Concorde (still to be assembled), but for the forseeable I don't have cash to spare. Have you tried sticking it on ebay?
