With just a handful of weeks left in RAF service, XH672 of 55 Sqn sits in formation aft and below us. This aircraft is now on display in RAF Museum Cosford's Cold War Hangar where she proudly displays her Gulf War 1 nose-art 'Maid Marian'.

Yes, extraordinary and very beautiful plane although I can imagine it is a bit of a love it-hate it design. But my goodness these were still in service in 1993!? and have thus been in theater in the Gulf-region!? This is an early 50's design...! Incredible, the B-52 almost has company then! Hooray again for the ol' time British aircraft desginers and manufacturers!

Best Victor photo ever! Most unusual angle, not seen anything like it. What were you in for the photo?! Congratulations.

Incredible angle! Must have been a real privilege to capture her shortly before she was grounded.
