        On the RAF website it says that 3 more VC10s will be withdrawn from use and the 16 left will be operated by 101 squadron. 10 squadron will be disbanded in October.

          10 Sqn to Disband?

          According to a post on another website it was announced in the last 24 hrs that 10 Sqn is to disband later this year and three more 10s are to be scrapped. Confirmation anyone?

          I should learn to type faster than mmitch!

            I bet it did. They are certainly not the world's quietest aircraft by any means
            The mind once expanded by a new idea never returns to its original size.

              I don't have a scanner, I gave up with them as the temp here in the Mojave kills them in about 2 weeks flat....
              If anybody ever tells you anything about an aeroplane which is so bloody complicated you can't understand it, take it from me: It's all balls. RJM.
