Avro Vulcan B2 XM646, formerly of No 101 Squadron, awaiting the breakers at RAF St Athan circa 1983. XM646 was delivered to No 12 Squadron in April 1964 and absorbed into the Coningsby Wing. The Wing moved to Cottesmore in November 1964. Unlike most of the Wing's aircraft, 646 (with 647) was not exchanged with aircraft from Waddington and moved with the Cottesmore Wing to RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus in February 1969. In January 1975, the Akrotiri Wing returned to the UK and 646 went to Waddington with IX Squadron. It was transferred to No 101 Squadron in June 1981. It was retired to St Athan in January 1982.
