One of the Royal Air Force Voyager fleet has emerged wearing a new livery to mark its status as the official transport aircraft of the Royal Family, Prime Minister and other government officials – Britain’s “Air Force One” if you like.

Voyager is the name given to the RAF’s Airbus A330 MRTT (Multi-Role Tanker Transport) fleet, and the aircraft chosen for the paint job is ZZ336.

Having previously worn the standard grey livery of the RAF, the aircraft now has a stylish new scheme with white fuselage and Union Jack flag tail which extends forward under the window line.

The aircraft has been painted at Cambridge Airport, and before any official unveiling has taken place these pictures have emerged of the aircraft.

Let us know what you think of the livery (and its almost £1 million price tag) in the comments below!

Can we verify this price tag – big debates all over the place that the plane was in for its main overhaul/std repaint, so are we really saying£1m for paint or that’s the total costof everything, so the fancy paint job is a sub part?

This is excellent, should have flying the flag on a state aircraft a long while ago.
