A40-AB @ Benbecula

I remember my Dad was pouring over some charts and had a slide rule and so asked him what he was doing and he indicated he was working on tight landing at a place called Benbecula in Scotland. I learned there was a live firing range there and it was going to be tight getting in. On the day the whole town turned out to watch him come in. I believe the crew was Denis Lowery, Barry Wood Co-pilot, and Brian Lingard as Flight Engineer. They had VIPs on board and indeed, A40-AB, a VC-10 std, landed in Benbecula.
