Vulcan B.2 XL361 at Goose Bay, June 1988; Tom McGhee

Now, the one and only Vulcan preserved in Canada! XL361 ended up there after a serious in-flight malfunction. It would have cost too much to repair her so instead of scrapping her, it was decided to turn the airframe into a gate guard for the RAF Support Unit based at Goose Bay. Soon after it was gifted to the local community of Happy Valley as a mark of the bond between the RAF and the local inhabitants.
