This panel is an accurate rendition of a real Standard VC10 Airliner.
Most of the research & photography was done on A40-AB, the Standard VC10 at the Brooklands museum in Weybridge, with some also being done on G-ASGC the Super VC10 at Duxford.

Every effort has been made to make it authentic in look and function, while still remaining useable in FS.
Fortunately, the real aircraft panel is laid out in a helpful way & it has transfered very well into FS.

There was a degree of variation between aircraft that were ordered for different airlines, so some details on this panel will not match other VC10s that were produced.  Note that the RAF introduced some upgraded instruments to their fleet & even more so when they were converted to tankers.  A modern RAF version will be made at some time in the future.
