Mother Grey - Lockheed TriStar
Lockheed TriStar RAF Tanker Aviation Art Print by Artist Paul Couper GAvA
The Lockheed TriStar entered service with the RAF in four variants covering the tanker and military passenger/cargo roles. A total of nine aircraft were acquired from both British Airways and Pan-Am and all served with 216 Squadron up until 2014 when the aircraft was replaced by the Airbus A330.
Here we see one of the
tankers re-fuelling Panavia Tornadoes of 56 Squadron.
