When I looked at this a while back (not just for Vulcans) "historic=aircraft" was the most common legitimate way to tag this sort of thing. There's a wiki page for it too. Unfortunately there's a fair bit of "tagging for the renderer" going on with static aircraft in the UK; e.g. there's at least one "imaginary fence" that has been used to define the outline.

A good point, almost all of the Vulcans in the overpass link I posted are tagged with barrier=fence which seems incorrect, I've edited that comment to reflect. Also looking through, still see some aircraft tagged with building despite what's on the wiki.

Hi Ben Fry, since you made or created an account for OSM,the first step to become a mapper, you could start to ad the airplane by using a dot or node with the appropriate tags. Your first contribution. Ps welcome. Please read these pages https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Main_Page

If you need some guidance about tagging, here are a number of examples of other Avro Vulcans in OSM: https://overpass-turbo.eu/s/DO0 Note that barrier=fence should NOT be used to make the aircraft outline render on a map.
