I was trying to get the feel of the cold war era by de-saturating and giving this a cold feel. All your ideas and advice would be much appreciated.

A tad to dark for me,otherwise it's brilliant.
I agree with wrinkles, brilliant image of this 'old lady'.
I think the darkness of the sky is very atmospheric and really gives the photograph a true meaning of the sinister role of a Vulcan Bomber, after all, it's a warplane. I'm not sure if I could make the adjustement I would like to see (limited photoshop knowledge and at work at the moment and cant remember photoshop buttons!) but I would lighten the foreground a little upto the wings of the plane.
I didnt realise that i left that out sorry. Thanks for all your comments they have really helped
I uploaded a Mod! I tried to lighten without destroying the eery sky. Would love to know what you all think. Cheers
I also uploaded a mod now I'm at home!
I slightly changed the exposure by +0.87, slightly increased the brightness, lowered the contrast by 1, added a cooling filter then blew all that out by changing the colour curves slightly!
It is a bleedin good photo you've taken!!
Real nice pov.
Assuming you have ps , you could "lift" the exposure with this simple workflow.
1. Dupe background
2. Change duped background blend mode to "screen"
3 .Adjust opacity of step 2 to suit mood.
The mod I slapped , duped your screen layer twice . Add a mask or reduce opacity to suit.
Just an alternative to using a heavy slap on effect like Topaz or just using the exposure slider in ps which would have blown the skies to get that f.g working.
Great image and Frank's mod is my favourite.
Is there a way of bringing more detail / brightness to the re-fuelling nozzle (I assume that's what it is)

I've very quickly modded the whole image using the shadows/highlights tool, push all three shadows sliders as far as possible to the right and that's brought out a little more definition in it.
Obviously it's wrecked the rest of it but applied selectively it would be an improvement. There's not a lot of detail to be had, some rivets and shadows and if I was to try for a bit longer, I think I could find a little more detail in it but not very much.
I've produced a number of images fairly recently in which I've gone for this kind of effect and with all of them I've overdone it, only realising how good they could look when someone's pointed it out to me so, upon close inspection, my pick of the mods. has to be Eviscera's.
There's a lot of detail hiding in those shadows and I think that the image benefits from a more selective/subtle approach to lifting it than just increasing the light/brightness in one sweep of the slider.
