Avro Vulcan B1 XH478 in refuelling trials with Vickers Valiant B(PR)K1 XE376 in 1958. 478 was delivered in March of 1958 and retained by the Ministry of Aviation for in-flight refuelling trials at Boscombe Down. 478 was converted to a B1A in 1962 and saw RAF service on the Waddington Wing. 478 was flown to RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus in March 1969 and used as an instructional airframe (8047M). The di-electric tailcone on 478 covers a tail-warning radar ARI 5800 'Orange Putter' that was also being tested by 478.
