The Vulcan, always a favourite at air shows with it's graceful flight but the sound from the engines is very loud. BUT, the days seem to be numbered for the Vulcan, the engines are coming to the end of their allotted lifetime and there just ain't any replacements. The costs if it could even be possible would be totally prohibitive. This is the first time I have seen the Vulcan since February 1970 when I saw one come into land at RAF St.Athan when I was there on a survey. This magnificent plane was one of the "V" bombers used back in the days of the cold war - the others being the Valient and the Victor.
