No 83 Squadron photograph, RAF Scampton, 1963. OC Wg Cdr John Slessor. The aircraft is Avro Vulcan Blue Steel XM571 which was delivered in February 1963. Although the aircraft can be identified from its serial on the tail as 571, the combination of 200-series engines and the small blister under and behind the leading edge restricts the aircraft to the serials XM570-573 (and 570 can be eliminated because it was delivered to No 27 Squadron).
