Avro Vulcan B1 XA900 at RAF Cosford in 1985, shortly before being scrapped. 900 was delivered in March 1957 to No 230 OCU at RAF Waddington. In common with the early Olympus 101-engined B1s, 900 was never modified to B1A standard and it ended its flying life on the OCU in November 1965. 900 and XA901 were the last B1s to fly with the RAF. 901 was transferred to Cranwell as an instructional airframe (7897M) and 900 was transferred to Cosford (7896M) and joined XA899 (7812M). 900 can be seen with a dorsal VHF blade aerial that is to the rear of the usual position. Where the VHF aerial would normally be is what appears to be a UHF aerial.
