For the first time since its retirement from RAF service in 2013, Brooklands’ Vickers VC10 airborne tanker will make a live public appearance with a full-bore-acceleration taxying demonstration on Sunday 30th August at 9.30am.
Brooklands Museum’s own queen of the skies carries the RAF serial number ZA150 and was the very last VC10 of 54 built at Brooklands in the 1960s. It was converted to an air-to-air refuelling tanker in 1984, several years after its airline service was completed. This will be its first public display since it was retired from RAF service and acquired by the Museum in September 2013, and be the closest most people will get to see a taxying aircraft of this size.
This film takes a look around the site, inside the Motoring Village, Aircraft Park, Wellington Hangar and on the famous Banking. Dramatic shots of the Concorde, a car ride up the Test Hill and views inside London Bus Museum.
