Vulcan 12 oclock level

I went out on my MV yesterday and was invited to take a trip over to see one of the final flights of the Vulcan bomber. Right atop the Aston Martin Factory too

What a great day it was..Turn the sound up !

Awesome bird of prey.....I always flash back to the Bond movie Thunderball when I see a picture of a Vulcan. One of the few opportunities here in the USA to see one flying, if only on film.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

I love where she turns after passing overhead. The sun glints on the delta wing and the crackling sound of those engines is awesome..The sound was making the ground and your heart shake !

Very nice Joe, I went to an Air show in Herne bay in September where the Vulcan and Euro fighter were strutting their stuff. This is the last year to see the Vulcan, you will never see it flying again.

Yes a bit of luck to be on the line that she tracked out on , considering there was a boundary in effect to view from of about 30 miles !

Just used my little Samsung Galaxy...The lighting was very kind ..A very memorable experience..
