Sad to see them going to the boneyard. I always loved seeing these fly when I was deployed with the USAF to Incirlik Turkey during the Northern Watch days. Cheers to those who flew and maintained them for those many years. Remember, NKAWTGN. If you are a tanker guy, you know what that means!!

The last flight of the RAF VC10s after decades of reliable service.

It's a sad day that such a beautiful aircraft will not grace our skies again - let's hope we will at least see them as static displays and hopefully (Vulcan like) in the skies again.

What a perfect photo - well done - and such a shame to have to say farewell to one of the greatest icons of British aviation
