Product Description

Avationtag Vickers VC 10 - Grey (Royal Air Force) XV106

It was 17 November 1967 when our Vickers VC10 from the British Aircraft Corporation (BAC) completed its maiden flight for the British Royal Air Force. Shortly afterwards it was registered as XV-106. In an official ceremony it was then christened the “Thomas Mottershead VC” after a legendary sergeant a short time later. In 1977, the aircraft had its first royal encounter when it appeared in the Finningley Royal Flypast in honour of Queen Elisabeth II and her Silver Jubilee.

On 27 July 1979, Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Philip and Prince Andrew then flew with the XV-106 to Lusaka to attend a Commonwealth meeting.

In 1994, the VC10 was repurposed as a tanker and cargo plane until it was finally taken out of commission in 2012 and has now been reborn as your royal Aviationtag.

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.

  1. Tag of history

    Posted by Steve on 12th Mar 2019

    Having flown as a passenger on this aircraft (XV106) I was pleased to be able to have part of the aircraft as a souvenir. The aircraft skin styled as a baggage tag is a brilliant idea. For those hankering for a bit of aviation (history), what is better than having a piece of an aircraft that you are associated with. I hope the company that produces these gain a wider scope of aircraft to make the tags from.
