RAF suspend VC10 passenger operations

Passenger operations with the RAF's ageing fleet of Vickers VC10 have had to be suspended. The RAF say "There are some areas where further investigation must be done to ensure that our airworthiness arrangements are at least as effective as for civilian aviation." The VC10s are due to remain in service until 2015 (some dating back to the mid-1960s), and are certainly a wonderful sight, we'll miss them when they are gone.
