UK – Cold War survivors No.9 V – Bombers

UK – Cold War survivors No.9 – The V Bombers.
Having lived within walking distance of Woodford , I grew up seeing Vulcans in and out in the 60’s & 70’s . I remember the 617Sqn white Vulcans on Blue Steel trails with the lightning marks on the tail. Woodford also converted the Victor’s to K2 tanker standard .
I will add more pictures as I locate them.
