Avro Vulcan B2 XH538 of the Waddington Wing at RAF Lakenheath in June 1970. 538 was used extensively for missile trials and eventually entered service with the Scampton Wing in May 1969, training No 27 Squadron crews to the free-fall role. 538 transferred to Waddington in April 1970, returning to Scampton and No 230 OCU a year later. In December 1973, 538 transferred to the newly-reformed No 27 Squadron, returning to the OCU in January 1975. In July 1977, 538 transferred to No 35 Squadron though it spent the period from August 1978 to November 1979 at Waddington on Exercise Giant Voice training. 538 was retired to St Athan in March 1981.
