The fast taxi run of 'Lusty Lindy' is always a good reason to visit Elvington Airshow.

This has got to be *the* meanest looking warbird built!
A true classic British Aeroplane.

Upswept T-tail, MEAN looking jet intakes, and gobs of jetwash blasting out of those exhausts! No one will confuse the Victor for any other airplane. I love it!!

This is the best photo of the Victor of all time!
Many years ago, I saw this thing do a "low-level" aerobatic "demo" at the Dayton Air Show"; Even though I saw it, I couldn't believe it! You would have thought it was a "Pitts" or an "Extra"......just incredible, something that huge, 2-300ft AGL......
Hey.....better not let those "Brits" hear you calling that thing "UGLY", "boy"! That's a "WARRIOR"!

I think Handley Page Victor is a rather undervalued as a combat aircraft. Despite all of its sophistication and excellent flying performance, the aircraft would be better known for its role as a tanker. Had the British government never cut their military budget in 1960s, this aircraft would soldiered on as a bomber all the way into 1980s!
