 In keeping with its revised role as a low-level bomber, Vulcan XH477 was on exercise over the Scottish Highlands. The aircraft had departed earlier from RAF Finningley in South Yorkshire, England, where it was based, and was carrying out a night low-level exercise in June 1963.

However, during the exercise, the Vulcan failed to clear a hill in Glen Tanar, and crashed with some force close toHill of St Colm. Sadly, all crew were killed on impact.
