Like the Spitfire, Concorde and Comet, one of the most beautiful aircraft to take to the skies.
I recall one passing low over the local recreation field when I was a youngster many years ago (many years ago!) and we were gob smacked at its shape and the noise it make (now replaced by the Eurofighter and Typhoon flights from Warton).
Last year, the Vulcan appeared at Southport Air Show - as majestic as ever and those responsible for raising the funds and for undertaking the restoration work deserved every credit.
as well, I went down to East Head at West Wittering today, and we had a flyover (at different times) from 4 Hurricanes, a Lancaster, Flying Fortress, and out to sea the Red Arrows, I think they must have been making their way from show to show, as I got back to Chichester the Vulcan flew over, quite a day.
At present the Vulcan is based at its tempory home at Brize Norton, prior to that it was based and 'repaired-rebuilt' at Bruntinthorpe Leicestershire. So if you have a nice runway and facilities at the back of your house, you could perhaps have a new lodger!.
The financial situation is and was never very good for this aircraft. In fact it is nearly the case every time as to whether the 'only' Vulcan can afford or remain super fit to attend airshows, more so in the future, and the likelyhood of it being a 'museum piece' is becoming more possible. So if you see it in motion, then saviour that moment, as it might be the last. Unless of course, a few more £million's are found!.
I remember the days, when the Vulcan was a daily sight near the A1 at Wittering. A real majestic beast.
