East African had five Supers, never chartered or borrowed, so I donít know how that came about.
Just been re-reading Brian Trubshaw's auto-biography; he says East African's VC10s were repossessed by BAC/BAe for non-payment and he helped ferry them back to the UK. He happened to mention this to the right pair of RAF ears who said "they may be just what I'm looking for!"
