Myself and good friend managed to get a visit to see XH558 at RAF Lyneham, photography was restricted to 'inside the hanger only' understandably.!

Special thanks go to Station Commander RAF Lyneham and Vulcan to the Sky Trust

Great pics of XH558. Managed to see it ib flight last year in Dawlish, flew in formation with the Red Arrows, was magnificent.

Great shots. Saw her at Sunderland airshow and she stole the show. They've got one at the Sunderland air museum but sadly not in that condition anymore. The Sunderland Vulcan, XL319, is outside and during the recent heavy snow she lifted her front wheel due to the weight of snow, see link below.
