Some of the images on this page represent the state of the aircraft in 2005
Our Super VC10 is complete. The 2d panel and 3d Virtual Cockpit are superb, the Flight Model is beautifully balanced. We have night lighting inside and out, rotating beacons, opening doors and a detailed Virtual Cockpit. We love this aircraft. It has been great fun, it has taught us an enormous amount and been very interesting.
We *love* FS2004 :) Thank you Microsoft!

|My hearty thanks go to the directors and staff
of Trans Global Aviation who generously allowed me to photograph many of
their aircraft gauges, gave access to their Pilot Notes and Jane's books and
especially to Schneider Trophy winner Nick Snook who has frequently abandoned his beloved B25 in
order to test my Vickers Super VC10. I have designed a TGA livery for our full VC10
product as a reward for his hard work. Trans Global Aviation are a real
aviation company. They do not, however, operate VC10s (although I am certain
Nick wishes they did!). Also thanks go to all the staff at the Brooklands Museum near
Weybridge, Surrey for giving me permission to photograph their aircraft and
for the wealth of information they have provided about this and other
Vickers aircraft and for running their excellent museum in such a friendly
fashion. Most of the staff I spoke with had been employed by Vickers/BAC
during the VC10/Vanguard/Viscount/One-Eleven years in design, building,
maintenance and sales of these extraordinary aircraft. I thoroughly
recommend a visit and a Family Membership.
