Black Buck Avro Vulcan B2 XM598 at Wideawake in 1982. 598 is fitted with a Shrike anti-radiation missile on the port pylon. 598 left Waddington for Widawake on 29 April and was the primary aircraft for the first Black Buck sortie that was launched the next day. Once airborne, 598 went unserviceable and XM607 took over the operation. 598 was later fitted with the Shrike missile but it was not used operationally, the honours going to XM597.
