Back where she belongs. XH558 in the air and approved for airshows. It's only taken 15 years and more than 6 million pounds. Commercail sponsorship needed to keep her there.

Just got back from RAF Waddington. She'll be displaying there at the weekend, then RIAT and Farnborough. Thos of you attending those airshows, expect traffic jams!

More shots as I process them.

Oh boy now I really can't wait for the Farnborough Air show. This is a beauty. I come from Doncaster and can remember these flying out of there regularly as a kid.

This image is best viewed large it is awesome.

I saw it a few times during its last season of displays, and can't wait to see it again 'in the flesh' - what a plane...and what a sound!

I have always had a love for the Vulcan for many reasons, my dad worked on them back in the early 60's, then we lived in Bracebridge in Lincoln and often heard them taking off from Waddington back then, I'm going to miss Waddington this year and absolutely gutted so I hope you get some great pictures.

Should be a good show at RIAT. For those there on the Friday, the Queen is presenting colours to the RAF and there's going to be a flypast of aircraft representing the 90 years of the RAF. Should be good now the Vulcan is back.
