Cold War Jets Open Day Sunday 25th May.

Post by Magnum »

The big public debut for ZD241 is here!

Come along to Bruntingthorpe and see the graceful VC10 as she performs her first public Fast Taxi run.

She will be open for public viewing in the morning until 2pm when the crew will need to prepare and move her for her run.

I wasn't in a position to get a video of the run today but I shall keep my eyes open and link to any decent footage that others shot.

A very enjoyable day with a small team of us showing the public the interior of 241. A big thanks to all those who made this possible and to the aircrew and technical crews whose efforts saw the first public fast taxi run. My ears are still ringing from the wonderful noise of those 4 Conways.

It was nice to see that many people came to the open day to see 241 running.

I must remember to bring some sun cream in August, my face is just a little sore from sunburn.

Cheers

Yes it was a very good day. The turnout seemed higher than last year so that might well be the vc10 effect! Thanks to all concerned.

You certainly did Tonks - it was an awesome run, with noise at both ends when you used reverse thrust :D. I'm sure that some folks were looking up thinking you were still going for it!
