Monday 18 March 2013 - RAF VC10 K3 ZA149/"H" makes final flypast at BHX on way to Bruntingthorpe

RAF VC10 K3 ZA149/"H" made an approach and go around to Runway 33 at lunchtime....

.... the aircraft was en-route from RAF Brize Norton to Bruntingthorpe where it is due to be
scrapped and the flypast marked the long association between the RAF and the airport

... which has seen many VC10's visit over the years on both medevac and trooping flights

.... the aircraft climbs away with the Elmdon ATC Tower in the foreground - given that the VC10
is now going out of RAF service this is likely to be the final visit of a VC10 to BHX - things change!!

Star Air Boeing 767-25EF OY-SRL flying on behalf of UPS made its first visit to BHX when it was
an early morning visitor to the Elmdon apron routing from Cologne to Belfast International via
BHX due
to the overnight closure of the runway at East Midlands for maintenance Photo: Mike Hollick
