Vickers VC10 at new Cornish home

One of the last three flying Vickers VC10 jetliners has arrived in Cornwall, where it will become part of the Classic Air Force collection in Newquay.

Known as "the Queen of the Skies", the VC10 was built as a commercial airliner but it has been the mainstay of the RAF's air-to-air refuelling fleet for many years.

The plane circled Newquay Airport several times before landing, as the BBC's Eleanor Parkinson reports.
