Flew on the One-Eleven a few times best flight was returning on a work trip from Milan to BHX on BA with a passenger load struggling to make double figures, it absolutely belted down the runway and lived up to it's nickname of pocket rocket in the climb, I'm sure we arrived early back at BHX.
Travelled on British Airways BAC 1-11 to Jersey from BHX in the late 70's. I remember the seat layout was unusual. Like a train carriage with seats facing those opposite and a table between. G-AWBL out and G-AVOE on return. It took 40 minutes!. Fabulous aircraft.
On a FlightSim I have VC10 as an add on. Super to fly, lots of clock type dials and no computer screens and sounds great! In real life,Nothing will beat Concorde on take off roll, truely unforgettable experience. It's the afterburner effect!
