Vulcan B2 low-level against hillside
RAF Avro Vulcan restored to late 1960s livery. Recalling the change of tactics that the deterrent aircraft and their crews had to undergo in the mid-1960s in response to improving Soviet defence capability, switching from very high level to very low. In the process they were repainted from their brilliant white "anti-flash" finish to the now-familiar grey and green camouflage pattern with white undersides.
