I'm slipping...!

Postby Ray C » Tue Oct 21, 2014 6:11 pm

So.... I've missed some activity re XM603 & her one quarter sister, The new Avro heritage building [former woodford airfield fire station] has seen work start with most of its roller doors & shell removed for re-glazeing/cladding.

I'm posting one shot from Facebook photographer unknown but thanks, & another from the Woodford community news.
1st shows the start of building work with a clever shot of 603, The other [people in foreground], are concerned with Avro heritage cent & one of the site owners. I have to say although progress has been slow those involved seem to be true to their word. :ymapplause:

So who knows the serial no of the Vulcan cone/cockpit....?

602 is the one the TVOC, as they were call then, were lent and they took it to air shows as well as using it for hangar visits.

Not that I am aware of Ray - there were bits missing and I think it only had one seat upfront, I'm not saying they didn't go in her and have a look but the training as a crew was done with 655.
