we were out in the boat fishing when they flew one on its final flight into Blackpool airport and was to be sat out there on display in front of the terminal before they finally got rid of it a couple of years ago. Did a really low level flyby down the coast and then back again right over our heads. Helluva sight(and sound) right over the boat twice accompanied I think by a spit and a hurricane. Nice to see they have got one in the air again.

When I was a lad, we were canoeing of Mull in the sea when a Vulcan did some low flying practice around the islands there. No that was impressive ground/sea shaking stuff!

I thought the one in the Bahamas was just a load of scaffolding poles now?
