Vulcan B.2A XJ824 at Duxford, 31st May 2006; author

Duxford's B.2 was at one time nicely positioned nose-to-nose with an Avro bomber of earlier years - a Lancaster, inside Duxford's Superhangar. XJ824 spent several years out in the weather and was looking rather scruffy but after moving indoors she was spruced up considerably, ending up looking pretty good. She went back outside during much of 2005, then spent the winter back inside before one final period outside while final work was underway on the newly expanded superhangar (now known as Airspace). Now she's permanently indoors and out of the weather.
