From another thread:
Further official word from CAF at Newquay...

The VC-10 is expected at 10.30, with several approaches before landing at 11.01 - the closest we could get to 101 Sqn!

A water cannon salute will welcome the aircraft as she taxies into our compound.
Perhaps this will give an idea of the departure times, it's the best I can do right now I'm afraid.

Thought I posted this earlier but it didnt appear.

Spoke to a contact at Newquay who confirms Jelles earlier info - 1101 also being the model number for the initial BOAC VC-10s.

I'd guess BZZ ETD between 0930 and 1000 local. However, there was low lying fog at Brize this morning (700m at one stage) and the forecast indicates possibility of the same tomorrow, so it may get delayed.

Enjoy it if you're making the trip.
