RAF BRIZE Norton is celebrating a record-breaking flight.

The Voyager aircraft set the fastest ever flight between the UK and the Falkland Islands, and touched down back in Oxfordshire earlier today.

The journey of 6834 nautical miles was completed in 15 hours and 9 minutes, breaking the previous record, which had been set in 1987, by 36 minutes.

Captain of the flight, Dave Hall, said: “I am delighted to be part of an amazing team that has set a new record and it’s an extremely poignant moment in history.”
