VC10 Last flights

Post by GJD »

ZA150 will now land at Dunsfold on Tuesday 24th September at 12:30 local. The aircraft has been purchased from the DSA for the Brooklands Museum. There is no intention of moving it to the museum at this time.
The final flight of a VC10 will be in to Bruntingthorpe on the 25th at about 12:30 with ZA147, it is hoped she will do a few circuits. The gates are open for all to attend.
Lets hope for nice weather, see you all there!

Something to keep in mind is that as Brooklands hasn't announced anything yet, perhaps the plans are not yet certain. We've seen already that ZD241's future at Brunty went from certain to unknown, XR808 was due for Cosford but ended up at Brunty with the full details still being worked on. However much I would like ZA150's future to work out that way, we may have to await the official communications. I'm not doubting Gary, I'm just being careful.
