Shame they were a little too heavy to be economical. Once the hot and high airports started building big runways for the 707 the vc10 had no advantage.
Also BOAC being so anti British aircraft at the time due to being force fed so much rubbish meant one of the best British airliners missed out on true success.
Still at least the tsr2 was successful
