The Near East Air Force Bomber Wing dispersal at RAF Akrotiri, Cyprus. Since the late 50s, the RAF had four squadrons of Mk 15 and 16 Canberras as a strike force based at Akrotiri and armed with Red Beard tactical nuclear weapons. In 1969, the four Canberra squadrons were replaced with Vulcan B2s by transferring the Cottesmore Wing (IX and 35 Squadrons).
