The Avro Vulcan was a British jet bomber designed primarily to carry nuclear weapons, although they could be configured to carry conventional weapons.   They had a distinctive delta-wing configuration and the design gave outstanding performance
 
As I understand it, XM569 was originally preserved intact, but subsequence issues in preservation resulted in the main fuselage section being scrapped.   The cockpit section survived though, and the museum offers tours inside the cockpit, and after taking the tour, I came away with an increased respect for what the aircrews had to tolerate.
