The #Vickers VC10 could carry over 150 passengers and was one of the fastest subsonic jetliners produced. Operated by #BOAC, the #VC10 achieved the shortest average transatlantic flight time between London and New York. #AviationEvolutions

The 747 offered #BOAC a far more comfortable, roomy, and luxurious option compared to the narrow-body Vickers VC10. It also had a capacity that was more than double that of the VC10 or the Boeing 707. Did you ever fly on a BOAC 747? #WidebodyAV #avgeek
