A second fave shot. XV200, after ops in to Sarajevo, having a rest at Falconara (Ancona). this aircraft was a real workhorse. I did many trips and routes in it, and had very few snags. Note the MAROC pods on the wings. I understand that MAROC simply stands for MARshalls (as in MARshalls of Cambridge) Orange Crop, stolen from the Vulcan, as was the refuelling probe. Perhaps someone ex V Bomber fleet could confirm that for me. Certainly, during the Sarajevo airlift we carried an AEop and heard lots of funny sounds on intercom.



I wish I had straightened the No4 prop better though.
