Avro Vulcan B2 MRR XH560 of No 27 Squadron landing at RAF Scampton in 1982. 560 was delivered to No 230 OCU at RAF Waddington in 1960. It was shortly returned to Avros for investigations and then loaned to the Ministry of Aviation in 1961 before being sent to 12 Squadron at RAF Coningsby in 1962 and back to the OCU, now at RAF Finningley, in 1963. 560 was issued to the Cottesmore Wing in 1965, transferred to Waddington in 1967 and transferred back to Cottesmore in 1968, moving with the Wing to Akrotiri in 1969. Stored from 1971, 560 was converted to a B2 MRR in 1973 and delivered to No 27 Squadron in 1974. Serving briefly with No 44 (Rhodesia) Squadron in 1982, 560 was converted to K2 standard serving subsequrently with No 50 Squadron. After the Vulcan was retired from operational service in 1984, 560 remained at Waddington as a spare for the display team and subsequently moved to Marham before being broken up in 1985.
