Here's a few of my digipix taken during the VC10's last year or so in RAF service. They are mostly taken at Brize and inclclude the 3 ship flypast in August 2012, RIAT and the last day of ops on Sep 20th 2013. Hope they are of interest.

Some great shots there mate, the one of ZA148 is that from when she was arriving at Newquay?

Hi Andy,

No, that shot of ZA148 was on RIAT departures Monday on the short hop back to Brize.

Thanks for the kind comments.

I see, 148 is now my local bird now, I will be visiting her again when CAF opens up again this year :)

Three 10's waiting to take-off :) and no-one complaining about the noise! (because any complaints couldn't be heard)
