There has been a Vulcan bomber at Southend Airport, my local, as it were, for some years, mostly just sitting on the Tarmac, and getting some sun
(rain). Ever since I was a child, I have thought the Vulcan to be one of the most beautiful delta wing airframes I have ever laid eyes on. I have seen
the Vulcan fly a few times, back in the day when there was an air show in my town every year, an event which has been cancelled the last few years.
The noise, the mind buggering, ribcage violating, blood vessel agitating, bowel churning noise of her passing overhead is something that no one can
possibly imagine, without having been present to witness it. Reminds me of an ex of mine in that manner to be honest.
God... I am terrible.
In any case, its a great shame that this will be her last flying year, since there are few things as majestic and impressive as seeing that beast of
an aircraft in the air. Godspeed old stick, you were a lady of rare refinement and class...mouth like a foghorn though!
