It is about time this beautifull aircraft graced the skies again, well done to all who supported the project and to the Lottery for supporting a UK prject.

This beauty brings back memories! In the 70's, the Vulcan would regularly touch-down in YWG. I lived near the airport and loved the roar of the engines when this beast took off!

The heat haze of the four Olympus engines is brilliantly caught, as are the members of Parcel Force in the background. But mainly becuse it captures an event many of us have long time for,
