Victor K.2 XH672 at Cosford, 17th May 2007; author

Moving up to Cosford we find XH672, a K.2 and an Operation Granby veteran. XH672 was initially ordered as a B.1 but produced as a B.2 in the first batch of them, converted to SR.2 (the fifth such conversion), she was later the final K.2 conversion. Served with 543, 57 and 55 squadrons. Maid Marian is her moniker and she carries artwork and mission markings on her port nose. She spent 12 years outdoors at Cosford but was then restored and repainted for display in the Cold War Exhibition, where she is now permanently undercover, though it's impossible to get a clear photo of her.
