Well she was a busy girl yesterday. I saw her fly by at the Sunderland International Airshow (staying up my families) along with a Typhoon, Spit, Hurri, Dakota, sundry helicopters and the Red Arrows, whov'e just flown past again. That was just from the farm, to many people on the seafront to get anywhere near it  :banghead:

And I STILL haven't seen her fly :banghead:

Me too.  Thought I might get to Waddo, then RIAT, or Sunderland this weekend but never made any of them.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Finally found the Vulcan flying list on the TVOC website - http://www.vulcantothesky.org/FlightOperations.asp

Looks like my best chance to see her this year is the Shoreham Airshow.

My head office is actually AT Shoreham Airport: pity I'm permanently based 360 miles away from it.... :banghead:

Are you based on the Moon? ;D

Great shots, Tojo663 - I wish she had flown at Yeovilton... :( Looks like I'll have to wait until next year to see her in the air.
