That's either BF-1, -2, or -3 or a later aircraft with the radar transmit/receive modules removed.  That flight test pitot boom mounts on the same frame they use (did the drawing for that, once upon a time).

@CWHM. Enough Merlins for you? A bit of a sad day as this was departure day from Coningsby on our 2014 UK Tour. This was the only time our Lancaster took the lead. #ThrowbackThursdays #TBT  @RAFBBMF

Mirage IIIs using their rocket:



Is it just me or do the Roundels almost look Indian:



There's a whiff for you:  Indian Air Force Mirage IIIs instead of MiG-21s.

Three Curtiss Kittyhawk Mark IIIs of No 112 Squadron, Royal Air Force preparing to depart from Medenine on a sortie. The pilots of FR472 `GA-L' and FR440 `GA-V', are waiting for the section leader in the farthest aircraft to move out. All three Kittyhawks display the squadron's distinctive 'shark mouth' insignia.

Also note in the above image that three of the KC-135 are fitted with additional IFR equipment in the form of wing mounted pods to service hose and drogue fitted aircraft (Tornado, Eurofighter, Hornet, etc.)
