The Strike Command formation at the RAF's 50th Anniversary at RAF Finningley in 1977. The Vulcans are (from the front) B2 XL426 of No 617 Squadron, B2 XL446 of No 35 Squadron and B2 MRR XH558 of No 27 Squadron. The difference in the amount of smoke produed by the Olympus engines is due to the modification state of the individual engines. All these aircraft would have had their original Olympus 201s modified as 202s but there was at this time a mod programme that reduced the smoke using redesigned burners.
