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.
