Super VC10 Navigation & Performance Manual

In this section you will find scans of selected pages from the East African Airways Super VC10 Navigation & Performance Manual. These scans were kindly provided by P. Robinson, and are presented here to give an insight into the planning stages of a VC10 flight. Also those who wish to make their Microsoft Flight Simulator experience a bit more complicated may wish to examine these charts. In time I might add some explanations to the pages about the various graphs and tables.

This data is presented for informational purposes only, nothing in this section should ever be used for any real-world flight planning or flying! Take note: the images on these pages are large, slow loading times can be expected!
