Vulcan Bomb Bay
Spring Clean

The following text was sent in by museum volunteer Geoff Leah.

Now that our electrical based trades, “leckies and Fairys”, have decided that it’s warm enough for them to leave the crew room, they have repaired the Vulcan cockpit lights and, equally as important, the ground servicing lights.

Apparently, they gave a couple of relays some percussive force .... a good thump or two!! However, this meant that the accumulation of years of dirt in the bomb bay was clearly visible to visitors!

Consequently, it was decided to try to clean the doors using some modern technology .... a steam floor mop.

The results can be seen in the accompanying photo (taken before the museum closed to visitors in mid-March)!
