My Vulcan

In 1982 I was passenger in  Avro Vulcan  XL319.
We flew from RAF Waddington to Malvern.  Flying quite low over where I worked at RSR Malvern.
Seen here, me and the crew - Capt. Flt.Lt. R Lole & Radar Flt. Lt. G Brady and others ( sorry do not have your names guys); standing in front of XL319.  To read more history of 'my vulcan' click here. Just landed was Vulcan XH558.



Meanwhile Vulcan XH558 can be seen here - a flypast with the Red Arrows
for the final time on 19 September 2015 at Southport Airshow. Click pic to enlarge

Her final flight was on 28th Oct 2015 and is described here. Sad.


On 23rd March 1993, a commemorative Wing Plaque was made marking the 25th Anniversary of XH558's final flight in RAF service.  My Capt. Flt Lt. R Lole and Geof Brady are mentioned.
