Vulcan B.2 XM606 at the 8th Air Force Museum, Autumn 2000; Paul Hartley

Another US-resident Vulcan is is XM606 at the 8th Air Force Museum. XM606 stood baking for many a year in bright sunshine and ended up looking very faded. She was repainted in high gloss camouflage but already the harsh sunshine has bleached the roundels and is working on the rest of the paint. In common with other Vulcans stranded in the US she hasn't been looked after too well. The cockpit hatch is creased and cannot be opened, the nose oleo has collapsed leaving the aircraft with an odd nose-low incidence, all her tyres are flat and she generally needs a damn good cleaning.
