Avro Vulcan B2 Blue Steel XM575 of the Scampton Wing at RAF Akrotiri in December 1965. The second 301-engined B2 BS, 575 was originally delivered to No 617 Squadron in May 1963 and was the second of five new-build Olympus 301-engined B2 BSs. Apart from seven Blue Steel aircraft that were converted to free-fall in 1966, 575 was the first aircraft to be converted as the Blue Steel force ran down being with the manufacturer from August to October 1969. It returned to the Scampton Wing for crew conversion of No 27 Squadron to the lay-down bombing role.
