VC10 rebuild now complete

After an eight month dismantling process, a 70 mile journey along the M6/M54 motorway and a four month rebuild, the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford is pleased to announce that its latest acquisition, VC10 serial number XR808 is now complete.

The VC10 arrived in Cosford in June and was partially reassembled on the airfield at RAF Cosford before being moved onto the Museum's site for completion. Since then the rear fuselage along the outer wings, fin, tail plane and engines have all been carefully refitted onto the aircraft in the rebuild area directly outside the museum's Hangar 1.

The VC10 was moved into its display position during mid-october and the final task of attaching the starboard outer wing was completed the following week.
