Vickers VC12, B.O.A.C., Operation Golden Calf (Evacuation of Commonwealth citizens from Hanoi ) 1976

Vickers VC12Edit

Following on from the VC10 the VC12 could trace its ancestry back to the VC7 proposal but using the Rolls-Royce RB.168 Spey engine instead of the Conways of the VC10, giving the aircraft increased range and far better fuel economy. The VC12 looked enough like the previous VC10 that it caused confusion throughout their careers.
