These two are especially for beverleycostello, who wondered if I took any shots of the Sunderland Airshow today. Unfortunately we never actually made it to the Airshow itself but parked a little way along the coast. I managed to get a few shots and these are two that were not too bad. I am way out of my comfort zone with aircraft shots, and I have absolutely no idea of what this aircraft is! I think it is a bomber of some kind, but perhaps one of you kind people will enlighten me!! I know that these are quite "noisy", as was the aircraft itself, but I did take it hand-held on full 20x zoom!

Thanks for your C&Cs on Portree Harbour!

Like both but it has to be V2 with that great exhaust line which gets my vote. What a gloriously blue sky too!!

Not the easiest subjects to shoot - especially at the speed they fly at. Whilst I was in Staithes, one of these (or something similar) flew overhead, and it appeared and disappeared in about 3 seconds! So, very well done here, Carol Smile

Holy cow...is that an Avro Vulcan?! Do they still have those??? AWESOME. I looove the Vulcan and the Victor (Handley-Page Victor, I think. My brother and I used to go through my dad's old Air Pictorial mags when we were kids).

And at 20x zoom too! Niiice, Carol Smile

Lovely shots of the preserved Vulcan, a finely restored and preserved V-Bomber, which used to provide part of our nuclear deterrent!!!! Smile

It is the Avro Vulcan Delta Bomber - XH558. The only flying Vulcan in the world.
