    Since my post last year - I'v been to see the XH558 a few times.
    Been on two hangar tours and was at the Cosford air show two weeks ago.

    If you guys are after a good video for the Vulcan howl, check below @ 0.18 & 4.40;
    Vulcan XH558 Hired For a Private Party " Dunsfold 19/08/12 " - YouTube

    Vulcan To The Sky are anticipating flying will continue until the end of the 2015 season if funding for a wing modification (strengthening) is completed - get donating!

    Thanks,
    Its a shame that photobucket cut down on the resolution.
    Also - they look abit cloudy due to the smoke from the smaller aircraft during the display.

    WOW.....Cosford hangars. Spent many a month in them doing my FT engineering course. Just had a 4 ship low beat-up over my house by GR4 Tornados.......right now. Still makes me tingle even if I did get kinda bored with it all after 22 years.

    Dug out my Vulcan photos from Wings & Wheels 2012 held at Dunsfold Park.
    The undercarriage shots are a bit dark - was using my compact camera (Panasonic TZ20) on pretty much full zoom.

    Amazing plane - such presence and menace with the howl.

    Got some video as well - need to process it.

    We went to Fairford with our friends. His dad used to work for the RAF and knew the guys who maintained one of them, so we got to go up close and personal.

    Its an amazing plan to look at and even better seeing it fly seen her a few times the last one was at RAF Waddington in 2013 and the way the pilot was throwing her about was unbelievable and the sound on full throttle is mind blowing, 1815337_orig.jpg
