Vickers VC10 at Duxford

As well as military aircraft there are a fair few civilian aircraft on display as well. I posted photographs of most of them before in August last year, but I hadn’t included this Vickers VC10.

The VC10 at Duxford is in BOAC livery.

The Vickers VC10 is a mid-sized, narrow-body long-range British jet airliner designed and built by Vickers-Armstrongs (Aircraft) Ltd and first flown at Brooklands, Surrey, in 1962. The airliner was designed to operate on long-distance routes from the shorter runways of the era and commanded excellent hot and high performance for operations from African airports.
