Airborne icon

A SPECIAL open day for the Brooklands VC10, considered one of the most iconic airliners ever to grace the skies, included a demonstration taxi run at Dunsfold Aerodrome on Saturday.

ZA150 was the very 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.
