More V-Bombers anyone?! Handley Page Victor K2 XL231 first flew as a bomber over Christmas 1961, at the height of the Cold War, and was later upgraded to carry the Blue Steel nuclear standoff missile. By the end of the decade, as Britain's nuclear deterrent passed to the Royal Navy and fatigue had taken its toll on Victor airframes, the active fleet was converted to in-flight refuelling tankers (designated K2). XL231 served as a development aircraft for the tanker trials before conversion to full K2 standard herself. She helped train crews for aerial refuelling duties in the run up to the Falklands War. She later, on the charge of No. 55 Squadron RAF, participated in Operation Granby, the codename given to UK ops during the 1991 Gulf War. XL231 acquired the "Lusty Lindy" nose art she still wears to this day at the Yorkshire Air Museum. This V-Bomber last flew (to Elvington) in 1993 and is maintained there in ground running condition. 🇬🇧 #aviation #aviationlovers #aviationlover #aviationinstagram #aviationphotos #aviationgeek #aircraft #aircraftspotting #aircraftlovers #planes #planefan #planelovers #planefans #airplanes #planespotter #planespotting #avgeek #avgeeks #instagramaviation #militaryaviation #militaryaircraft #warplanes #aviationdaily #handleypagevictor #handleypage #victor #elvington #yorkshireairmuseum #inflightrefueling

The Yorkshire Air Museum is home to a grand total of three "Bricks", the other two covered in previous posts. This airframe is Blackburn Buccaneer S2B XX901, which entered service in 1977 and had a pretty distinguished flying career. In 1983 she was deployed to the Falklands and later that year took part in Operation Pulsator, in which several pairs of jets flew over (and in some cases through!) downtown Beirut as a show of force to anyone planning to attack the Multinational Force in Lebanon. In 1991, XX901 was daubed in a crude coat of "desert pink" camo and deployed to the Persian Gulf as part of Operation Granby, receiving the Sky Pirates flag and "Flying Mermaid" nose art in the process. On one of her 14 combat sorties during the Gulf War, she destroyed a taxiing Iraqi transport plane with a laser guided bomb. Returned to standard grey/green camouflage on return to the UK, she was saved from scrapping to transferred to Elvington. Her Granby colours, plus nose art, were reapplied and she's preserved in immaculate condition. 🇬🇧 #aviation #aviationlovers #aviationlover #aviationinstagram #aviationphotos #aviationgeek #aircraft #aircraftspotting #aircraftlovers #planes #planefan #planelovers #planefans #airplanes #planespotter #planespotting #avgeek #avgeeks #instagramaviation #militaryaviation #militaryaircraft #warplanes #aviationdaily #buccaneer #blackburnbuccaneer #gulfwar #operationdesertstorm #skypirates #yorkshireairmuseum #aviationenthusiast

Gloster Meteor NF 14, Yorkshire Air Museum, Elvington, York. A drawing I did some time ago of the YAM Meteor. I drew this one during a coffee break at work, working from a photo I had taken while it was displayed on my computer screen.

"In a corner if the hangar: Meteor restoration". In a corner of the hangar of the Yorkshire Air Museum a team led by volunteer Graham Buckle is working on Gloster Meteor NF Mk 14, WS 788. It was built in February 1954 at Baginton, Coventry as a two-seat night fighter. It served with 152 Squadron at Wattisham before being allocated to No 2 Air Navigation School at Thorney Island. Later it served with No 1 School at Stradishall where it was damaged in an accident. In January 1966 it was allocated for ground instructional use. From September 1969 it was on static display at Patrington Radar Station, Spurn Head, moving to Leeming, as the station gate guardian. It was brought to Elvington in 1991. (Information from the Yorkshire Air Museum website.) Drawn with Pentel 0.3 and 0.5mm pencils and a Tombow Mono Zero eraser on A4 cartridge paper.
