One of the truly iconic jet airliners, the Vickers VC10 is superb example of British engineering that left a lasting impression on many; those who flew it as pilots, or in it as crew or passengers, those who worked on the initial design, manufacturing, or maintenance programmes, or those many more who simply saw it in the skies. The VC10s have been retired for several years now, but this 116-page special, republished to celebrate 60 years since the type’s first flight, relives the heyday of this popular airliner. The title looks at the type’s development, its service both as a civil carrier and with the RAF, including the Gulf War and operations over Iraq, plus data files and production lists. It is our tribute to a legend of the skies.
