Vulcan K2 pics
« on: November 19, 2012, 08:29:17 PM »
After posting in the GV74 thread I have scanned in some pics, that were taken in early 1984 prior to 50 Squadron disbandment, of the hose basket assembly fitted as part of the mods to make the K2 variant.

Of note is the extended tail indicator as the bottom of the assembly is much closer to the runway on landing than the existing structure.

Hope these may be of interest as they cover a period from which you do not see many pictures.

Have posted them in this part of the forum as they do not seem to fit anywhere else.

Nice pics.

It looked very 'Heath Robinson' but it worked. Still looks like a skip to me  ;)

Thanks for the pointer to this Brad, the Vulcan team at the Jet Age Museum will be interested in the photos.
