Avro Vulcan B2 XH563 of No 230 OCU over Doncaster Racecourse. It is suggested that this photograph was taken in 1969 to commemorate the move of the OCU from Finningley to Scampton by overflying some prominent local landmarks. 563 transferred-in from the Waddington Wing on 18 March 1969 and was loaned to the Ministry of Technology 8 April - 11 June and 18 September - 2 October. Though the OCU moved at the end of the year, this photograph shows trees with full crowns.

Interestingly, 563 has a non-standard paint finish on the port mainplane in line with the front spar. This suggests some maintenance work had been carried out since the aircraft's last respray.
