Avro Vulcan B.2, XM751, of the Scampton Wing as seen from the tail at its base of RAF Scampton. Underneath the aircraft, on a trolley, can be seen four bottles of pressurised nitrogen used within the aircraft's Electronic Counter Measures suite. The bottles would be loaded through the open tail hatches seen. The Scampton Wing consisted of Nos 27, 83 and 617 Squadrons.
