The last surviving Valiant was moved from London late in 2005 to Cosford. Here she waits outside for her turn to enter the Cold War building. This aircraft is a significant piece of British history as it was the aircraft which dropped Britain's first hydrogen bomb (or was it really a fission bomb? There is some controversy!). The names of the crew on that day are painted near the entry hatch.
