Re: Vulcan Bomber XH558

Great shots and to make it even more worthwhile can some of these be made larger on the page?
It's good to see that the Vulcan is based in the near north and let's hope that the funding keeps it flying throughout the year.
I've been looking at some of the tracking of this flight to the Isle of Man over on FighterControl - you might need to log in but take a look at the last page of http://www.fightercontrol.co.uk/foru...8893&start=460 for an animation of its track back to base.

Regards
Chris

Re: Vulcan Bomber XH558

I think she takes off again on sunday

I was going to wait till she returned to get some pics off her landing with the shoot out but sadly I could not

They were collecting to get money to help keep her in the air

Re: Vulcan Bomber XH558

I always think it's a plane with a particularly menacing look and a bulk which makes slightly surprising that it manages to get airborne. It's certainly a classic aircraft and a favourute of mine. Great sequence of shots.

Re: Vulcan Bomber XH558

A superb series, I particularly like the shot where the aircraft has just parted company with the runway (number 4).

An iconic aircraft that is a thrill to see flying again. We recently saw it at the Abingdon display earlier last month, I posted some images from that show here http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthread.php?t=14519

Re: Vulcan Bomber XH558

A beautiful aircraft. I remember once when I was in the RAF I was working on the airfield at Mona on Anglesey (relief landing ground for RAF Valley) and I heard a deep rumble. I looked up and there was a Vulcan flying right over me at no more than 100 feet. That was in the early eighties just before the RAF decommissioned them. An incredible sight and noise.

A couple of years ago I had the privilige of having an earlier RAF bomber, the BBMF City of Lincoln Avro Lancaster (PA474) all to myself to photograph: Lancaster gallery

Thanks for posting your shots

Steve

Re: Vulcan Bomber XH558

A very iconic aircraft - and was last used in earnest during the Falklands conflict.

I saw three arrive from I think Singapore in Canberra for a RAAF airshow in the 1970s. They were very VERY noisy and the smell of keorsene still assaults my nostrils.

But what an air display - brilliant.
