Vulcan B2 Blue Steel XL361 of No 617 Squadron carrying a semi-recessed 'Blue Steel' training round (W103A) at the Farnborough Air Show in 1962. 'Dickie' Bird recalls:

'I was on 18JSTU at Scampton when we sent 361 to Farnborough that year. I think that it was T9 that was painted blue just to please Joe Public. It stayed that colour until the simulator rounds were scrapped. Best thing about that show was the little man from Dunlop with his pot of gold paint. All eighteen tyres on the kite were Goodyear!'
