The Vulcan didn't fly today. I went especially to see it. Yesterday I saw it from my house in the distance. There was a problem today which they worked on but
could not fly it. It was a wet day but great displays.
Red arrows superb as always. Spanish display team great. We queued two hours to walk through an AWAC
but it was a great experience

LOL Mac, I've just been looking on Youtube at the clips that peeps have put up already. The Vulcan did a flypast with the Lancaster from the BBMF.

Oh dear Linda, I bet there are a few wet feet around tonight then. What did you think to the Vulcan then? We are going to Fairford next weekend and can't wait to see it flying there.

Hi Helen
Do you mean Waddington near Clitheroe Lancashire ?
If so; it will have been washed out - pee'd down all day in fits and starts

Does anyone live at or near to Waddington? Would love to hear about the show today?
Especially The Vulcan.
