Built from an engine nacelle from RAF VC10 XV104.

The VC10 and Super VC10 were flown by BOAC (later British Airways), a small number of other airlines and the RAF.

Some of the RAF aircraft were used as air-to-air refuellers and a number of redundant BA examples were also acquired by the RAF.

The VC10 was a fast and popular passenger jet but never sold in large numbers. It was also hellishly noisy.

Here's an example being flown into Bruntingthorpe airfield and aviation museum.

VC10: four engines, 10 barndoor flaps, .50 cal nose gun. That's a lot of plane.

Actually, that's a flight refuelling probe.

The RAF use the 'probe and drogue' method of air-to-air refuelling and the VC10 was capable of receiving, as well as supplying, fuel mid air.

That is always exciting to watch; great precision flying.
And a huge misuse of resources.
Is there anywhere but in warplanes where in-air refueling is used?
The fifty is just for when the pilots have underlying issues.

The Pacific be big, very very big. There are places in the Pacific you could drill a hole straight
through the center of the Earth and the drill would pop up in the Pacific.

OK, late to the jet engine house party, very cool but they just phoned in the back end. It would have been awesome if they had built the nose of a plane on that end, but they didn't ask me.

The Rolls guy must have a network that clues him about suitable locations.

Evidently in Russia large blocks of concrete are relatively common.
