The only remaining Valiant aircraft in the world. This was the actual aircraft used to drop Britain's first thermonuclear bomb ("H-bomb") near Malden Island in Kiribati (near Christmas Island) on 15-May-1957. It is most unfortunate that she is hemmed into this corner - this (poor) angle is the only possible photo position :-(
