Vulcan B.2 XL361 at Happy Valley - Goose Bay, 19th March 2011; Earle Hickey

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.

The airframe overall looks somewhat in good shape as seen in the photo above.
