    Here's some good footage of the 'Northern Tour' taken from the cockpit and bomb bay 2 weeks ago today. Alas, Cosford and I seem to have been edited from history..... Stirring soundtrack mind you.

    Well, the Vulcan took it's last ever flight this afternoon and it was shown live on TV and the net. Only problem was the feed went down as it came in to land! The whole thing was a major disappointment, a couple of circuits and bumps for 15 minutes and that was it, what a way to see the old girl out, anti climax is not the word!!

    I was intending to post it here, but it was rubbish and a complete waste of time, so instead I settled for this; where the Vulcan is truly appreciated in a galaxy far, far away.....



    Over and out, Ned.
