Taken on Sunday at RAF Waddington.
It is great to see that this wonderful aircraft is again in our skies. Sadly though, on Sunday, it never made it to the sky.
Although it had flown on Saturday, an electrical fault prevented it from flying on Sunday.
So as not to dissapoint the crowds too much, it made a high speed taxi along the main runway. This happened immediately following the biggest downpour of the day.
Fortunately though the Sun broke through at exactly the same time, providing a dramatic backdrop.
Then the pilot gunned it!! The power/heat unleashed by those four engines, immediatly turning the water on the runway to spray/steam.
I hope I have done the ensuing image justice.
Over to you to decide.
Got to go out shortly for a couple of hours, will catch up later.

Excellent capture, great shot.
Absolutely superb shot....I took a photo of her at coningsby earlier this year when she was there for compass swings....
Magnificent to see pictures of her and to see her fly again....
A superb shot, great timing. I love the dark sky against the white spray. Superb!
Super shot, great to see one in action again. Marvellous aircraft with super engines.
Fantastic Plane, great picture.
I think you will find that aviation buffs dream of pictures like this, it simply fantastic.
Im not usually into photos of planes but found this one appealing, I think the dark sky and the spray do it. Angi
Great shot with the sky and spray.
Over the last few days I have seen many images of the Vulcan at Waddington,but this is by a country mile the very best yet Stewy what you have caught here is the magic of this wonderful machine,awesome wish it was my shot,cheers John
a wonderful sight
Yes, the thunderstorm did make for some good effects on the day, maybe better than a blue sky It really worked well here to give you that contrast with the spray.
WOW!! Thanks all. I feel a bit like the rain on the runway, blown away!!
Two hours turned into four and only just got back in so will have to catch up tomorrow now, but many, many thanks for the terrific response to the shot. I never expected it to be so well recieved.
Wow, stunning shot, well captured
I think it's a very fitting image, "dark and sinister" as would have been it's mission in it's day. Thankfully that day never came.
Absolute must for viewing large.
Wow what a terrific shot
Dramatic shot with "perfect" weather ackdrop to and awesome plane.
Great job stewy it looks great could see this as a poster
Terrific atmosphere. Love the spray and dark sky backdrop.

Once again a huge thank you for all the support on this one, which has now turned into my most popular upload.
Superb shot Martyn, you have certainly done it justice, hopefully one day I will witness this awesome machine
Nice one, it flew over our house twice on Saturday, I didn't even manage to get the camera out, but it was amazing to watch.
