Onboard as Vickers VC10 jetliners fly last mission

Two of the military's iconic refuelling aircraft - the VC10 - have made their last ever flight after 47 years of service.

The planes flew sorties around the UK from RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire, refuelling several planes air-to-air before landing for the last time.

The "tankers-in-the-clouds" are to be dismantled and replaced by a fleet of new Voyager A330-200s.

BBC South Today's Adina Campbell was onboard for a memorable final flight.
