Photo Comment

This special schemed VC10 took part in the static display at RIAT 2012 and now carries '101 Squadron 95th Anniversary 1917-2012' markings on the tail and '50 years of VC-10 flying 1962-2012' titles on the engine cowling. Note the B-2 82-1068 lurking in the background waiting in turn to line up on rw27.
