A one off 'all aircraft' including x3 VC-10's are on the runway unti 14:00.

I'm very tempted to make the trip, but this is my only day off in the week, so I really can't be bothered. Looks like a great photo opportunity :clap:
6D | 7D | 60D

Wow, just seen this and I'm 2 hours away, oh well!!!!
Was this advertised, maybe they should do this in the summer too. In better weather and visibility.

That VC10 on the right looks a bit nose low?

Cheers,
Jeff.
I know you think you understood what I said, but I'm not sure you realise that what I said is not what I meant.

Very nice, are you allowed on the ground for a closer look?
Also where is the fifth Jet Provost?

You were allowed on the ground around the aircraft, people were kept back for while to allow uncluttered pics from the cherry picker. I wasn't brave enough to go up.

just to pick up on this, looking at other photos, it has all 4 engines removed, hence the tail high stance :smile:
