Vickers VC10 Diecast Model
RAF

1:400 Scale   Length   Width
Vickers VC10   5.25"   4.5"

From early on in the VC10's career the RAF was interested in the type, but it wasn't until after the airlines had sold their aircraft that the main career of the VC10 in RAF service started. 20 years after the last fare paying passengers disembarked from a VC10 the type is still flying every day as a tanker or transport aircraft with two RAF squadrons.

Please note: An optional display stand is available separately if you wish to display this model "in-flight".

Vickers VC10

Designed to meet a need for a jet aircraft that could comfortably take off from and land on shorter runways, the Vickers VC10 was first flown on June 29, 1962. This long-range British airliner holds a long-standing record for the fastest Atlantic crossing by a sub-sonic airliner (only the supersonic Concorde has beaten its record). Advanced even for its time, the VC10 was designed with a quadruplicated automatic flight control system, which enabled fully automatic landings in zero-visibility conditions. Despite its promise, the VC10 only served as an airliner for 15 years; in the 1970s it was removed from service because of the high noise levels it produced on departure and approach.
