The queue is so long at the moment that I thought I'd share all of the hard work done by the engineers, aircrews, sponsors, etc in the forum (if I am allowed to!). She flew today from Coningsby to Bruntingtorpe via Cranwell and Waddington. What a beautiful sight to behold! Only a few more weeks and she will be seen all over the country at the airshows.

Awesome, glad she's finally flying and wish she could visit this side of the pond I'd love to see her.

I hope she will be participating to the flight demos at Farnborough. I was talking on the phone with Mike Bannister and he said there are some new problems with the aircraft? I hope they will have them fixed soon and also have sufficient funds to keep her flying. She is totally awesome.


There was a better way to fly it was called Concorde

Well I see the Vulcan is no longer listed on the Biggin Hill website. Damnit. I am going and was really looking forward to seeing it.  Sad

I believe there was a flight earlier today at Bruntingtorpe? One of my instructors was heading up to fly her while the other chased her...


Me: (Lining up on final) I shall now select an aiming point. || Instructor: Well, I hope it's the runway...

Vulcan's a beautiful bird. I love the engine intakes in the wing (a la DeHavilland's ill-fated Comet). I'd love to see it fly over here, although I did get to see a static Vulcan on display at the Strategic Air Command Museum outside of Omaha, NE a week ago.
