VC10
« on: October 19, 2014, 17:55:01 PM »
Last week Terry Mason and his Merry Men visited Elvington Airfield. It looked as if the day would be a write off as the fog hung around until around 3 pm. However, the VC 10 was ready and waiting to take advantage of the blue skies that followed.
It was wonderful to see this model in its finished state, as I saw it in it's early stages, several years ago.
It flew wonderfully, ably piloted by Dave Johnson. The illusion of the real thing is as close as makes no difference. A casual viewer would believe they were watching a full size airliner / tanker.
A few shots. Sorry it has taken me a week to getroundtuit.

Not certain but I think it is a fair bet.

Wonderful. A worthy addition to the big jets on the circuit, The Comet, Vulcan, Victor et al.
