THE VC10, as conceived in 1956, was an air‐craft developed specifically for B.O.A.C.'s Commonwealth air routes. For this, the requirement was to transport 32,000 lb. of pay‐load over stage lengths of up to 2,200 nautical miles at speeds in excess of M=08, coupled with the ability to operate from hot and high aerodromes with short runways. In this form, the plane evolved as a four‐engined jet aircraft, of about 240,000 lb. a.u.w. and 2,400 sq. ft. wing area.
