Thanks for the info Rob. :thumbsup:Sacrilege Gareth!.. :facepalm: It's a Vulcan. As Clarkson says, you should be taken out the back and shot! :smile:
It comes from the time when we had a proper Aerospace industry, not just one that builds 'bits', like my company. We were arguably the best in the world then.
Yeh, I know what you mean, I see the old shows at places like greenham common with the planes they had on display, and I'm so jealous, really feel like I missed out..I love the 'Vulcan howl' as it spools up - no other sound like it, and one of the first aircraft sounds I ever heard when my dad took me to my first air show when I was a kid. :thumbsup:
Me and Julie will be going to Dunsfold in a few weeks, as I simply have to see it fly one last time before it is grounded. I will have a tear in my eye for sure.
My dad was in the RAF and these aircraft actually come before cars for me - they are in my blood!
My favourite was the Lightning, but there are so many types gone now. Flying displays used to last all day with maybe 15-20 different current military aircraft, but we will be left with just the Typhoon and the F-35 in just a few years - that is if they can afford to fly them for air shows.
