Loved by thou­sands of en­thu­si­asts all over the world, the full his­tory of this pow­er­ful and grace­ful air­craft is told in won­der­ful de­tail by Keith Wil­son. In­clud­ing so many in­ter­est­ing facts and dif­fer­ing in­sights, the in­trigu­ing story of the de­vel­op­ment of the VC10 un­folds in an easy to read and re­ward­ing style. Il­lus­trated mainly in colour, the el­e­gance and tech­ni­cal de­tail of this ma­jes­tic air­craft is beau­ti­fully cap­tured. First de­signed, built and op­er­ated dur­ing the pi­o­neer­ing age of jet engine trans­porta­tion, the fact that the VC10 then con­tin­ued in ser­vice for a fur­ther fifty years is a true tes­ta­ment to its ver­sa­til­ity and op­er­a­tional re­li­a­bil­ity. Loved by ev­ery­one who op­er­ated, trav­elled in or sim­ply ad­mired her, it is a tragedy that the VC10 was man­u­fac­tured in such small num­bers. This lat­est ‘own­ers’ work­shop man­ual’ will be ap­pre­ci­ated by VC10 fans re­gard­less of their pre­vi­ous level of in­ter­est and knowl­edge. It will cer­tainly be a valu­able ad­di­tion to my own col­lec­tion . HD
