Sea Vixen XJ607 photographed in 1985 at RAF Cosford, U.K. In the background is VC-10 G-ARVM which was then part of the British Airways Collection at Cosford. Ironically, both aircraft in this photo were to suffer similar fates. The Sea Vixen was broken up and its nose section transported to QAM in Australia. The VC-10 was also broken up (as recently as 2006!) and its fuselage transported to the Brooklands Museum. Photographer Mark Taylor is on the ladder.
