Avro Vulcan XL426 is one of three remaining taxiable Avro Vulcan strategic bombers, the other two being XH558 and XM655.

It has been owned and maintained by the Southend-on-Sea-based registered charity the Vulcan Restoration Trust since 1993 and carries out occasional taxi runs at London Southend Airport.

It served with the Royal Air Force from 1962 to 1986.

XL426 was part of the first batch of 24 Avro Vulcans ordered by the Royal Air Force on 25 February 1956.

 It was built at Avro's Chadderton and Woodford plants, like other Vulcans, and was the 44th of 88 Vulcan B2s built.

Its first flight was on 23 August 1962, from Woodford Aerodrome, which lasted 1 hour and 35 minutes
