Vulcan 2008, originally uploaded by L.B.

The Mighty Avro Vulcan.

It gave me such a great feeling to see this cornerstone of British aviation take to the skies again.

The awesome sound of the engines as she started her take of roll just a few hundred yards from me…..and the breath taking, ground and gut twisting thunderous rumble of the four RR-Olympus engines (like Concorde’s) as she accelerated down the runway before rotating into a steep take off climb.
