The Vickers VC10 was a superb aeroplane that could have been a world beater but for the politics that surrounded it. Lance Cole tells the full story of its design and development in this welcome addition to the Crowood Aviation Series.
Using original Vickers documentation and interviews with the design and flight team, he has amassed a wealth of material, from its inception as the type V1000 through to its current use with the RAF. Vickers VC10 is a fine tribute to an expertly engineered aeroplane.
