It did i.ndeed return today but the display wasn't as good.
The Arrows broke their display off early due to something else in their airspace. All the other displays seemed boring with the exception of the 4 Gazelles and one Lynx. At least the Lynx went upide down. Nearer the end things looked up a bit when the AWACS and 3 Tornados made an appearance. Was also amusing watching two of the Tornados chasing two Hawks around in circles.

Following on from the Typhoon..............

When is a Vulcan NOT Mr Spook?

Still the best aircraft I've ever seen flying. Even better to actually feel the hanger that I used to watch from shake and the exhaust blast as it goes vertical directly above you. Very Happy

May it soon return.

I was sat in a small cafe, last year, next door to the one they are restoring and didn't even know it was there. Then rode up and down the runway at Bruntingthorpe.

A screenshot from a recent TV show about the Vulcan that I downloaded the other day. Taken after the second visit I think. The craters near the centre of the runway have been filled in.

Hopefully, today is the day. Very Happy

A Vulcan bomber XH558 is to fly again after years of resoration work by engineers - weather permitting.

Bit of a short clip and it doesn't look like Sky sent their best camera operator.
