I remember the Abingdon Vulcan well, she stood eventually in the far north eastern corner of the airfield near the ATC hut, unfortunately that corner of the field has a far more unwelcome neighbour in 'Whitecross metals'. I had always felt that parking a redundant aircraft with 100yds of a scrap dealers breakers yard was like putting a fox in the chicken coup. I believe same dealer tendered and got the early Nimrods that were 'dumped' on the base mid eighties.
There was for some time a fuselage section of either swift , early Hunter or something of that ilk lying in the grass and undergrowth near the ATC hut for years, many a time threatened to nip through the fence and give it a positive ID and one day there it was gone.
Abingdon was a bit of a dumping ground at one time, particularly with the Ex BA VC10's in their plastic bags.
