Re: The Last Chance

This is a bit surprising. Must have looked amazing but wouldn't have thought they'd risk it in a plane so old.

Perhaps a bit daft but glorious. The Vulcan probably gets a more intense service after every flight than any other aircraft and as it was perhaps the last flight ever the crew decided to stick two fingers up to the regulations - they are civilians and so they can't be court martialled or reduced in rank.
In my opinion as long as they didn't endanger anyone else - bloody magic.

I saw the stills for that a bit back and I believe it's fake. Here's a real one

Re: The Last Chance

The first and last demonstration flights - the first Vulcan at Farnborough also did a barrel roll. Alpha and Omega.

Re: The Last Chance

Channel 4 on Sunday, 1930 hrs. Promises to be a good programme about the last flight of the Vulcan.
