The Vickers VC-10 flew its final mission today from RAF Station Brize Norton, after many years of faithful service with the Royal Air Force.

The last two flying VC-10s flew from ‘Brize’ on Friday September 20, 2013, and visited several airfields in the UK. They were accompanied by Tornado and Typhoon fighter aircraft. AIRheads↑Fly was waiting for them to return to RAF Brize Norton to see their final landing.

Camera ready, sound ready? Action! Witness the last ever landing down here. Be sure to see – and especially hear – the Vickers VC-10 in all its glory one more time. We from AIRheads↑Fly surely did!
