VC10 to taxi at Dunsfold on Saturday

 

A special open day which includes a VC10 taxi run demonstration will take place at Dunsfold Aerodrome on Saturday 15th July. ZA150 was the last VC10 of 54 built at Brooklands in the 1960s and was one of the last two to fly with the RAF from Brize Norton in Oxfordshire. On its retirement in September 2013 it was acquired by Brooklands Museum and flew in to Dunsfold, where a team of dedicated volunteers maintains it in running order.

As well as seeing the full-bore-acceleration taxying demonstration, visitors will be able to tour inside the aircraft, chat to the VC10 Volunteers and see for themselves how it was converted from a commercial airliner to an air-to-air refuelling tanker
for the RAF. Entry is by pre-purchased ticket only and the timetable for the day is as follows:

12.00-14.00  Pre-booked visitors will arrive via the Stovolds Hill entrance to Dunsfold Aerodrome
13.00-13.15  Taxi run on the Dunsfold Aerodrome
13.45-15.30  Group visits on board the aircraft
14:00   Last entry to Dunsfold
16:00  Event closes

Tickets are available from the Brooklands Museum website: www.brooklandsmuseum.com
