Vulcan B.1 XA893 at Cosford, 8th May 2003; author

Above is B.1 XA893's nose at the Aerospace Museum at Cosford. As you can see they've cut two big holes in the side of this nose, so people can walk through it. You walk into the rear crew compartment, which has a platform surrounded by railings in place of the seats, and the view up into the pilots area is nice and clear, because they've removed just about everything on the starboard side up there. The visual bomb aiming blister is gone, as the exit from the nose now runs down the centre and into where the radar would have been.
