    Dear All

    After joining the forum, I would like to know if anyone has a photograph of Vickers Valiant XD 864.

    In short i've researched the crash of the aircraft at RAF Spanhoe on August 12, 1960 at 10:38, just 3 minutes after take off from RAF Wittering killing all crew on board.

    I have met some of the crew families and attended the 50th anniversary Memorial Service.

    I have read all of the documents on the net but the main thing I would like is a photo of the plane pre crash.


    I've contact Cosford, Hendon, Honington, Wittering, BAE Systems, the Air Historical Society, Newark (V Force Reunion) and a few individuals but to no avail.

    Please has someone got an image of this aircraft they could share.

    Regards and thanks in advance.
