I hope it flys over us. RAF Finningly (Now robin hood airport) used to be a vulcan base we lived over 5miles away as the crow flys from the airport but knew every time one was taking off.
Not the quitest of aircraft but a truely magnificent beast
most beautiful jet bomber to fly IMHO i have the most wonderful memory of two of them flying out from the far side of Snowdon when we did the valley airshow years back.............i herd them coming n my gaffer was going mad cos i stopped working and stood there waiting to see it (them) just as i looked towards Snowden the flew round the side of it and straight towards us then out to sea where they opened up and you felt the roar more than heard it.
few years later i saw something similar to my memory on a collectors plate.....it was called thunder in the valleys and from what i read it was taken from a photograph which had been shot at the same airshow.
I used to live at Amesbury, just down the road from Boscombe Down, when I was a kid. Vulcans were a common daily sight as were the Victor and Valiant, until the Valiant took early retirement, as well as a lot of other hardware including for a while the TSR2.
Personally I have always preferred the look of the Victor over the Vulcan. I think that it has that bit more menace and purpose behind it.
Lets hope they get it flying and are granted a CAA certificate. There is another delay as they are short of 18 parts. It was hoped to have it in the Falklands flypast, but they have now cancelled. They hope to have it at Waddington airshow, that is now doubtfull.
