Welcome! According to the team that looks after ZA150, the damage to the VC10 is not that serious. Mostly cosmetic, and easily cleaned up. The other aircraft, the 'James Bond' 747 and an airworthy twin, were severely damaged unfortunately. Hopefully they will be able to catch the lowlifes that did this.

Yeah, there are sadly such bouts of thoughtless destruction just for the sake of breaking something by deranged people or unmanaged youth, and it's getting increasingly common... Although it is far from being a new issue, my grandparents had problems with kids breaking farm equipment and running in crops in the 50s :lol:
ANd it's sad to see that they choose, for the thrill, to break and damage what matters to people: historical monuments and objects (like a plane, for example), personal works (there was recently a railroad model show that had all of what exposed broken by kids in the night), or even, in the worst case, actual, living, pets.
