Avro Vulcan B2 XJ823 at the Woodford Air Show 1966. Malcolm Taylor remembers:

The photograph was taken at the first air display at Woodford, 1966. The MoD wouldn't give permission for a Vulcan to take part in the display, so there just 'happened' to be a test flight scheduled (on a Saturday!). It took off, disappeared for an hour, returned, did a touch-and-go, then landed.

This fits in nicely with 823's known movements. Having been on the strength of of No 230 OCU at RAF Finningley, 823 was returned to the manufacturers in June 1965 for a retrofit and reentered service with the Waddington Wing in November 1966.
