ROLE

Vickers VC-10

The Vickers VC10 is a long-range British airliner designed and built by
Vickers-Armstrongs (Aircraft) Ltd, and first flown in 1962. The airliner
was designed to operate on long-distance routes with a high subsonic
speed and also be capable of hot and high operations from African airports.
The initial concept of the VC10 was to provide a jet-powered airliner that
could comfortably make use of the shorter runways commonly in use at
the time. The performance of the VC10 was such that it achieved the fastest
crossing of the Atlantic (London to New York) by a jet airliner, a record
still held to date for a sub-sonic airliner; only the supersonic Concorde was faster.

The VC10 is often compared to the larger Soviet Ilyushin Il-62, both aircraft
having a rear-engined quad layout, the two types being the only airliners with such a
configuration. 17 Super VC-10 (type 1151) were built for BOAC in the
1965-69 period and became an immensely popular aircraft in the BOAC fleet,
both with passengers and crew, being particularly praised for its low cabin noise level
and comfort.
