Cliff, this must be one of your prestigious images in your collection, what can I say: sharp, good definition, good composition and of course a good subject. You have done yourself proud with this one. Well taken my friend

This one brings back memories, I have worked on this Vulcan, when it came into RAF Lyneham Wilts,
Lyneham was one of the dispersal airfields for V bombers when there was a “flap” on, Cold war and all that.
Lovely shot of a very big and beautiful old bird.

Taken as it was landing after finishing its display, the best part was take off, the noise is unbelievable. There`s also a documentary on Sky TV which is repeated now and again, telling the story of its restoration.

Aren`t you the lucky one loskeran, did you ever manage to fly in one I would give my back teeth to go up in her. Many years ago back in the 50s and 60s my grandad had a farm in Burtonwood next to RAF Burtonwood and as a child I can remember watching Vulcan's taking off. "Awesome"

Thanks for your comments guys, much appreciated

Hi Cliff,
The Vulcan may look big, but the room inside is rather cramped, just enough space for the flight crew and that is it.
I did go to the big display, When i was injured and in a wheelchair I met the Queen and Philip, and had one of the best places to see the display, 3 of everything 3Vulcans-3 Victors-3 Valliant’s flying low down the airfield then climbing away,
I can assure you the ground shook, and my wheelchair!
