Vulcan at Ayr today from the sea

Cracking show by the Vulcan at Ayr today; shame the Lancaster(s) couldn't make it

Was a good day, sun was shining (most of the time). There were a few ribs and keel boats out watching.
Think that is the only Vulcan that is airworthy - I'm sure someone can confirm. It is an amazing sight and sound when the 4 Olympus engines open up as it climbs away from you.
The British and Canadian Lancasters were on the bill too but I believe there was poor weather at their base that stopped them taking off.

Saw it last year at Clacton airshow. It even got my young daughters excited about aviation and engineering. Possibly only because I was jumping up and down like an excited fool.

Ahh I see, it's just that I was and saw it too late to photo it. I was snapping the game as a photographer and eyes were on the ball and not on the sky till too late.
