I remember watching a vulcan take off at an airshow in devon, incredible that anything that size can take off like it does.

When I'm working in Germany, I fly out of Southend airport. There's been a Vulcan sat next to the runway for a few years now....perhaps that one's going to be restored too..... :?:

Yeah thats the one,it was left out in the weather for far too long,elements got the better of her,damn shame,i was lucky enoughto be on the runway when she made her final touchdown,flew straight over the top of me and friend almost sucking us from the grass,awesome plane,we still make spares for an old boy who regularly flies his Spitfire about the area,good to see the Vulcan bomber airbourne again,another menacing outline in the sky,so elegant but also deadly in its day.
