Built in 1961, XL231 was the first Victor to under go K.2 tanker conversion. Used for tanker trials beginning in 1972, it would only get the full conversion and return to service later in the program. Later serving in the Falklands War and in Operation Grandby of the first Gulf War, the V Bomber was retired in 1993. Luckily one of five Victors to escape scrapping, it is privately owned but displayed at the Yorkshire Air Museum and kept in taxiable condition.

Photographed at the Yorkshire Air Museum Night Shoot (illuminated with sodium rather than tungsten lamps). The sumptuous curves of the Victor made sure that I came home with some super images from this fabulous, friendly museum.
