Getting Ready for Vicky

It's already looking busy at Newquay as we await the arrival of the VC10. She's expected overhead at 10:30 local time and we're expecting a few low passes before she lands at 11:01. The fire tenders are out to giver her the traditional water arc welcome, and the press and TV are already picking their spots. A good day threatens!

Just watched the VC10 fly over our cottage - what an awesome sight, beautiful aircraft and so good to see it has come to Cornwall for it's final resting place. Well done to the museum for saving these old aircraft for future generations to enjoy.

Great to see Nick Milikin on spotlight . Spent 11 years on the fleet wonderful memories. ZA147 flew low over my barn on approach runway 30 what a sight and sound of 4 conways. Well done classic for saving aK3 for the nation.
