A famous Vulcan indeed - used solely as a test bed for the Blue Steel missile project, then the Concorde Olympus 593 and later RB199 engine development with a mock-up MRCA (Tornado) fuselage under-slung including a trial cannon installation. F/f 10.05.57. An RR crew flew 903 into Farnborough from Filton on 27.2.79. Dismantling began in 1980 and finally b/u soon after this shot. Nose/cockpit saved and taken to Wellesbourne Mountford
