The RAF’s first Rivet Joint, delivered on 13 November 2013, is seen here arriving back at its base at RAF Waddington after having participated in the station flypast at the start of the station’s 2014 Air Show. Three aircraft were diverted from a USAF order to comprise the RAF’s fleet, which explains the curious hybrid USAF livery with USAF-style lettering spelling-out Royal Air Force along the fuselage. This aircraft was built in 1964 and until recently served as a KC-135R in the USAF.
