I have not found a specific thread for V-10, that she deserves.

Ultra british jetliners

Note: first liner is powered by 5 Conways :o :mellow:

Glad you picked the Landor scheme for them, by FAR the best one.

Although the original BOAC one was pretty darn good.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

I never managed it. :(

I was booked on a BA VC-10 flight to Johannesburg sometime in the early 80s, but they 'upgraded' the service to a 747, ratbags.  :banghead:
