Thanks, i done very well with picture taking. Last years airshow at RAF Fairford i took about 30 pics this year totalled well over 500. I'm slowly starting to get a passion for photography. I've got a few more of the red arrows and Vulcan plus some shots of the Vulcan on her own. When I get home I'll post some

Just a half mile? How in the world do you get any work done? I could look at that thing till my eyeballs rotted out!


I'm surprised you don't visit the old girl at Southend airport everyday. Been meaning to get to one of their open days

just what is it with the Brits and their glorious heritage? Ask your lottery funding committee to get their fingers out.

Oh we love destroying our heritage.

English Electric Lightning - gone
Blackburn Buccaneer - gone
Harriers - gone
Vulcan - pretty much gone
Handly Page Victor - gone

You get where im going with this. Ha the lottery funding committee would rather use their money on pointless things and not on things that help remember what our 'great' country once created

So thought I'd upload some of my Vulcan pics from RAF Fairford on Sunday 19th July (my bday)
First one, not a close up but thought this pic just showed what it looked like with its size flying through the country side

Second one, the belly of the Vulcan

Next, not a great catch but a fly past with bomb bay doors open

Next, Coming in for a fly past .. again not the best of shots

The great lady coming in to land

And finally a few more of the Vulcan and the Red Arrows, my favourite I think is the last pic were the Vulcan pulls off to the right after its fly past with the reds .. a sad goodbye




Oh and just for the record these are all my pics I haven't stolen any

XR220, the second TSR 2 prototype was brought out into the open for this years Cosford Air Show. She still looks hugely impressive, and surprisingly big, except for that tiny wingspan.

It really was scandalous that the government decided to scrap the development of that plane.

Apart from anything it was such an atrocious waste. Not just of the development work already done, but 40 airframes were already in various stages of construction when the axe fell. By that standard alone I think it was criminal.
