The VC10 is often compared to the larger Soviet Ilyushin Il-62, both aircraft having a rear-engined quad layout, the two types being the only airliners with such a configuration (a configuration that they shared with the earlier, but smaller Lockheed JetStar). The last two VC10 tankers still in service with the RAF made their final flights on 24 and 25 September, having performed their last aerial refuelling on 20 September 2013.
