Quote from: AS.12 on August 05, 2018, 11:16:30 AMCuriously enough, a few days I ago I was comparing the VC-10 with the 757 and 767. It actually comes in marginally heavier than the original 767-200 ( 147 versus 136 tonnes MTOW ) but has about 80 sq ft less wing area than the 767. Aspect ratio is also lower for the VC-10, 7.4 versus 8.0.And even the 707-320 only had 40 sq ft less than the VC-10. I do wonder sometimes if the hot and high 'compromises' are exaggerated in order to cover for the fact that it just couldn't compete with the Boeing marketing machine..
