There are a few references on the web to a picture of a Vulcan bomber supposedly photographed over the Mekong Delta in 1965. Does anyone know if it was really taken there (seems unlikely) and if so what a Vulcan might have been doing there at fairly low altitude?

No doubt about it, I recognise that bit of sky. :O
