Note: Every tag is unique. Depending on the plane, tags may vary in terms of haptics, material thickness and colour. Small blemishes bear witness to the plane’s long history and are an authentic reminder of its glory days over the clouds.
The Vickers VC10 made by the British Aircraft Corporation (BAC) was one of the first jet-propelled civil long-haul aircraft. Construction began in the late 1950s at Vickers-Armstrongs (Aircraft) Ltd. Part of the civil fleet – like our XV-106, too – was later converted into tanker planes – six of which were even deployed by the Royal Air Force (RAF) in early 2013. On 25 September 2013, the XV-106 made its last RAF flight – the last ever flight of a VC-10.
