This is thought to be the last ever Vulcan-Victor formation. The picture was taken by Neil Cottle from an RAF Hercules in 1991. “I do clearly recall walking down the back and seeing XH558’s refuelling probe almost in our freight bay!” says Neil, who was the Hercules co-pilot. Even then, XH558 had been the last flying Vulcan for five years.
