VC10 XR808 and its journey to Cosford 2015


This photo gallery includes a selection of images charting the journey of VC10 XR808, also known as Bob. The aircraft is now on display at Cosford following an eight month dismantling process, a 70 mile journey along the M6/M54 motorway and a four month rebuild. The transportation of the VC10 was made possible thanks to the support of BAE Systems Heritage and the RAF Charitable Trust.
