A nice shot of one of the long time residents at Brize Norton, a 10 Squadron VC10 C1K tanker transport. This example XV106 still sports its original 'white top' scheme at a time when many are returning in the less attractive grey finish following major servicing.

At least a Phantom was present, increasingly rare these days, with this example coming from JG-71 of the German Air Force.

A Tornado ECR was also present from the German Air Force.

Tornado F3

An unusual Tornado, an RAF F3, which carries the markings of 1435 Flight which was established to protect the Falkland Islands.
