Retirement

All the VC10’s have now been retired and a couple have been purchased one by the Classic Air Force  and the other at http://www.coldwarjets.co.uk/

ZA-148 at NewQuay has had her engines removed as you can see from the pictures.  The engines cost £12,000 each and the museum couldn’t afford them, the cost of ZA148 was £40,000.

Check this video out on YouTube – VC10’s and a Vulcan doesn’t get much better than that

Chris Golds the renowned RC modeler has been very supportive and helpful as well as Alasdair Sutherland who’s book on Aeronautics for Modelers has been a real help which you can get form Traplet at http://shop.traplet.com/  I’ve emailed them on a few occasions and both have replied and given great advice.
