Valiant BK.1 XD857 at RAF Marham, 10th May 2017; Richard E Flagg

The last mortal remains of Valiant XD857 is this small section of the cockpit. The picture shows the front pressure bulkhead well, and how the nose was cut horizontally around its mid-point, and vertically just behind the pilots' seats. The pilots' deck is still intact but pretty much gutted with little to give away its true identity as a rare Valiant survivor. Hopefully some day soon it will be spruced up and put on display rather than hidden under a tarpaulin as it currently is.
