Ghana Airways Chooses the VC-10, c.1962

A wonderful vintage newspaper advertisement from some time in the early 1960s, as Ghana Airways had announced their intention to purchase three Vickers Aircraft VC-10s. Note that the advert states "built by British Aircraft Corporation" as Vickers was coming into a government-pressured nationalization scheme to form BAC. The tagline, "projecting the Clean-wing shape of the future," underscores the delightful optimism of the announcement.

The 2-page spread above is dominated by the broad airliner zooming across the sheet, presumably on a future flight between London Heathrow and Accra Kotoka.
