Yahoo Map of Cockpit of Avro Vulcan K.2 XL445 at Walpole

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


XL445 is now the only Vulcan nose at Walpole. Mounted on a (somewhat makeshift) frame so that the cockpit access hatch can be opened and you can go inside, XL445 (service nickname - Fireball XL445 - of course!) is the only K.2 in existence (unless you count XH558 which was a K.2 before being converted back to near-B.2 status. The rear cockpit is in pretty good condition with only a few missing instruments; the pilot's panels are being worked on to restore that area - apparently RAF personnel did a lot of souvenir hunting while XL445 waited to be scrapped, and most of the instruments along with the joysticks were forcibly removed. She's in desperate need of a clean or repaint!
