Thought we had the VC.2 pictured somewhere on the forum but couldn't find it, so here goes (from Air Pictorial, August 1955):

1954-ish: Viscount selling profusely; Viscount Major being schemed (to emerge as Vanguard); V1000 funded in R&D for RAF, VC7 offered.
VC10 sold to BOAC, 1957. By 1960s-late...empty, Weybridge as quaint history. What went wrong?

Vickers-Armstrongs (Aircraft) Ltd/Sir Geo. Edwards were Units within arsenal Vickers Ltd. 4/4/57 White Paper cut back Defence Budget. Vickers Board put Aircraft into BAC Ltd., 1/3/60, to ensure funding of (to be TSR.2). GRE, almost unprecedentedly, had won his Board Approval in 1956 to develop Vanguard PV, without Treasury Launch Aid (which came with a Sales Levy, to be re-paid before profit)...and Caravelle killed it, and with it any Corporate appetite for civil aircraft risk. So, quite naturally, Boards at Vickers (and elsewhere) brochured what BOAC/BEAD (thought they) wanted. But they were protected parastatals, insulated from commercial reality. So they specified parochially, as no sane operator wanted.

You can see a bit of VC.7 style and influence in some of those early Vanguard designs in regards to nose and tail shape and layout.
