Hi Dee

Yes the ladder does fold all the way up, and i would have thought that back in the operational days when flying just in the UK they would have put the access ladder in the bomb position like they would have done on a overseas deployment. If for any unknown reason they had to land away from their homebase  this would have caused a problem if the access ladder was left at their base.

Hello All

What if a Vulcan was doing a sortie from eg Waddington - Waddington and then for some unexpected reason had to divert to another airfield. How would they get out and back in if the bottom portion of the ladder was at Waddington.
