Routings and Timetables

One of my goals on this site is to collect a database of routings that the VC10 flew. To start I've compiled two timetables from BOAC, showing the services for the summers of 1966 and 1968 ,an Air Malawi route map and a Gulf Air timetable. I'm hoping to add more in the future, so please get in touch if you have a timetable from a later date, or another operator, to share.

Air Malawi Route Map

This route map shows the routes served by Air Malawi. It is safe to assume that the longer trips were done with their single VC10 7Q-YKH which is also featured on the front of the brochure.

BOAC 1966 Summer Timetable

This timetable was published for the general public to enable them to plan their trips. It is worth a look for the various VC10 ads at the bottom of some of the pages. The timetable also includes the 707 schedules. When a route was flown with a VC10, the timetable doesn't tell us whether it was a Super or Standard VC10 unfortunately.

BOAC leaflets for services from Amsterdam

These brochures were printed to promote services to the USA from Amsterdam, via London.

'Daily flights by VC10 to Boston - Chicago - Detroit.' Including connecting flights from Amsterdam with a BEA Trident.

'Direct services from London to eight cities in North America.' Including connecting flights with KLM or BEA.

BOAC 1968 Summer Timetable

The timetables below are from the BOAC Operations Navigation Manual. This means that they were for BOAC internal use. Because of this they are split up into two sections covering the Standard and Super VC10 routes. It is interesting to see that the Super and Standard versions were mixed on some routes, there was no area that seemed to be exclusively covered by one version.

Standard VC10:

Gulf Air Timetable 1st April 1975

This Middle-Eastern operator only flew the VC10 for a few years, but they made good use of that time. The timetable below shows the network as it was in April 1975 and includes the 'Golden Falcon' services operated by the VC10s.
