Avro Vulcan B. Mk.2 XH536

Avro Vulcan B. Mk.2 XH536

An outing to the Black Mountains and Brecon Beacons yesterday in flag-cracking sunshine proved successful in locating two wreck sites from the Brecon Beacons pamphlet.

First up was this one, a crater left when a Vulcan crashed into a snow-covered hillside indistinguishable from the low cloud around it on 11th February 1966 with no survivors. Click on the pic to see the wreckage in the crater.

Location: SN 91152 21363
