Sadly didn't have much time for photography as I had the pleasure of driving a few ac on the day, however, this may be of interest to some:

A bit of film taken from the cockpit of the VC10.

And just a couple of photos I took on the prep day...

That's a really good video. You get up to quite a speed before the throttles are closed off, how close is this to rotation speed?

Thanks for posting, its the next best thing to sitting in the cockpit with you!

It looks like they cut the throttles at 90kts. Their rotation speed would of course be dependant on their weight. From a minimum take-off point of view they would need 10 tonnes of fuel to maintain longtitudinal stability. Assuming they had 10000kgs (and a modest load) then Vr would be about 120kts. For a stripped down a/c significantly less obviously!
