Full Official Name:
Almost immediately the aircraft moved with 230 OCU to RAF Finningley where the aircraft spent some 8 years before returning to Lincolnshire in 1968.
The aircraft was converted to a B2(MRR) in 1973 and to an air-to-air refuelling variant K2 in 1982. It was returned to standard B2 configuration in 1985 and was the last Vulcan in service.
From 1986 to 1992 it was the RAF's display aircraft.
After service with the Royal Air Force the aircraft was sold to C.Walton Limited and delivered by air to Bruntingthorpe on the 23 March 1993. The aircraft was kept in a serviceable condition and would undertake fast taxi runs along Bruntingthorpe's main runway.
It returned to flying status in 2008.
