Homepage: No info
Other info: Perhaps the most famous individual aircraft I have been aboard is XM597, the Avro Vulcan that had to make an emergency mx diversion into Rio after one of the "Black Buck" raids to the Argentine-occupied Falkland Islands in June 1982. I was privileged to receive a cockpit tour of this plane in 1999, where it is on static display at East Haddington, Scotland.
