H.P Victor Mk.1: Jeff Hawke to the rescue.

The nose end of the Victor B.1 (XH928) bomber of 10 Squadron at RAF Cottesmore in June 1959. Looking definitely like a skipper of a 1950’s manned rocket fantasy, a Victor “crew member” posing in the bombsight position. The prominent projecting tube is the feed intake for the artificial feel unit of the fully powered control system.

Magnificent portrait,that white visor-less “Mk.1” helmet and, specially,the oxygen mask.
