The final Vickers VC10 ZA147 tanker landed today at Bruntingthorpe Airfield today. Yesterday ZA150 landed at Dunsfold Park for a museum. The landing today brings to an end of a successful type of airliner and military type of 50 years. Todays flight consisted of leaving Brize Norton, a couple of farewell circuits,off to Birmingham Airport for a touch and go , then over to us at Bruntingthorpe for 2 circuits and a landing. Today Bruntingthorpe Airfield was opened for the public especially for this event and i thank them for allowing photos to be taken.

Great pics - shame to see the VC10's out of service.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

It is a 60 year old design.
