Is anyone planning to go to the VC10 at 50 event at Brooklands?
"A celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the first flight of the VC10 prototype from Brooklands in 1962, featuring a flypast by 101 Squadron (subject to operational requirements) and the opening of a new VC10 exhibition in the restored fuselage of G-ARVM. The draft outline of the day, hosted by Max Kingsley-Jones, Editor of Airline Business, is as follows:
10.30am Welcome & coffee
10.45am Speakers including Chris Orlebar, Mike Bannister, Alistair Pugh and other pilots and engineers
12.00 Exhibition Opening & Group Photograph
1.30pm Afternoon session including speakers from the floor, reminiscences and films
3.00pm Tea & VC10 Birthday Cake
Timings are subject to the timing of the flypast."

Man, I wish I could attend! This was one of my favorite aircraft. I feel fortunate to have actually flown on one, a BOAC VC-10. I'll be hoping to see news and videos about this anniversary celebration.
Those who want to do something will find a way; those who don't will find an excuse.
