UK Alert - Last Flying Vulcan

Postby Spitfire666 » 03 Jul 2015, 15:47

If anyone doesn't know, this is the last year we will be able to see the Vulcan flying. Events are selling out because of this, so move fast.
If there's one thing certain in this uncertain world it is that Algy won't go home without us.

The only time it's in Scotland I can't go! :( I shall have to be content with the crumbs thrown at me from YouTube.

My school playing field was about 3 miles from BAE Samlesbury where they were made. They used to come roaring over the school field preparatory for landing.

Quick bump for an old thread ---

Saw her over Carlisle - the air museum there has another example, as does Sunderland. Quality is not good, I wanted to watch !

Lord, I thought for a second it was up again. I stood on the cliffs at Dawlish, brilliant vantage point, on one of it lasts outings and got some shots. Murky day but an extraordinary sight and sound, very glad I saw it.
