These photographs are copyright of the webmaster.
They show XJ824 which is now conscientiously 
preserved by the staff at Duxford

 

 


 

1. Tail Fin of XJ824 
2. Note the Ferranti TFR blister and refuelling probe. 
3. Me with XJ824.

 

 

 

 

 

Close-up shots of the refuelling probe.
Note the small cockpit windows in relation
to the size of the aircraft.

 

 

The tail of XJ824 proudly displaying the emblem of 101 Squadron.

 

 

This shot gives you an idea of the massive
 delta wing surface of the Vulcan.
Note Concorde in the background.


These images of XJ824 were sent to me, however I have lost the photographers details. If you recognise them as yours please e-mail me so I can credit you accordingly.

 

 

 

The white blob with fins, on the right, is the rear view of a Blue Steel nuclear missile

Note the "blister" underneath the refuelling probe. That houses the terrain following radar

XJ824 Duxford

Just above the nose-wheel leg is the seldom-used bomb-aimers blister

XJ824 is an example of a MkII Vulcan

XJ824 was last used by 101 Squadron

The protrusion just below the RAF roundel is the pitot tube to measure air speed

The red engine covers prevents birds and other debris entering the engines when the aircraft is parked

Note the tiny cockpit windows to minimise flash from a nuclear blast entering the cockpit
