Just read that the last VC10s to fly are doing a round of airfields as a demo today Friday 20 Sept 2013 then they are grounded.
The last two VC10 aircraft (ZA147 and ZA150) will conduct their final air-to-air refuelling sortie, then diverge to carry out fly pasts of various locations around the UK. The aircraft are expected to fly according to the following schedule (all timings are local):
12.20 – Newcastle
12.40 – Warton
13.05 – RAF Coningsby (VC10 will be accompanied by a GR4)
13.15 – RAF Marham (VC10 will be accompanied by a GR4)
13.35 – Birmingham
12.35 – RAF Lossiemouth (VC10 will be accompanied by a GR4)
12.55 - RAF Leuchars (VC10 will be accompanied by a Typhoon)
13.15 – Prestwick
Both aircraft are expected to return to Brize Norton by 13.45 for a final fly past at 14.00.
Wish I could be in the pub in Witney and celebrate but a long way from Bali.
