An Avro Vulcan and a Handley Page Victor are flying through a thunderous night sky on a operation to the Falklands. The Vulcan is the bomber and the Victor is the fuel tanker. The Vulcan is heading in front of the Victor for a refueling. On this journey the Vulcan would refuel seven times on the journey to the target and once on the way back.
The Vulcan was one of the three V bombers the Vulcan, Victor and the Valiant. The Vulcan was chosen as the main nuclear and normal bomber and the victor did a little time as a bomber but was converted to be a fuel tanker.

The composition is constructed with several images. The aircraft photographed at air shows and the back ground from the files.

A brilliant image Connor.

Not just in its execution but there was obviously some serious thought put into its conception.

This must rate as one of your best.

Shortlisted!

As I said above Connor, this is a brilliant image at which I've looked several times.
In fact, it's impressed me sufficiently to award it my user award.
Well done.

Bren.

Smile Great atmosphere in this Connor. Excellent concept and execution.

Did you ever read Sharkey Ward's book about the Falklands conflict? Imaginatively titled "Sea Harrier Over The Falklands" it was nevertheless a really interesting book and had some very scathing comments on the cost/benefit equation of these Blackbuck missions. Used enormous quantities of fuel and resources for very little effect...

Cheers, Goggz

Startling atmospheric feel to this one (and I don't mean the lightning!) - the skyscape is first class with real depth afforded by the aircraft. Excellent all round.
