Remarks: RIAT 2012- One of the moments which I will surely treasure in my life. As she howls in the air, the Vulcan heads for a high rate of ascend into the skies at Fairford. Truly a beautiful piece of machinery....and history!
Remarks: This was such a good photo opportunity as she climbs away after a low fly past. A delight to see this iconic aeroplane in the air and one hopes the on-going funding regime can keep it there! A highlight of any show in which she participates.
Remarks: Vulcan G-VLCN (XH558) ‘Stole the Show’ at the Farnborough Airshow on 14/15Jul2012. Under-Side rear view of ‘The Spirit of Great Britain’ banking and climbing into England’s Wild Blue Yonder with minimal smoke. (Note deployed speedbrakes and cambered outer wing leading edges). I was pleased to find that the Vulcan flew on both public days at Farnborough. Thanks to the ‘Vulcan to the Sky Club’ for a supporting and funding a great flying display.
