Avro Vulcan B2 XH534 of No 230 OCU at RAF Upper Heyford in 1969. The second B2, 534 first flew in 1959 and was used for extensive trials. Modifications in 1965 included the fitting of the front 'Skybolt' pods under the wings (even though Skybolt had been cancelled) and 534 was ultimately to enter service with No 230 OCU in December 1966. In April 1972, 534 was put into storage but it was subsequently converted to a B2 MRR seeing service with No 27 Squadron between 1974 and 1981.
