Les Auld: I'm afraid not Chad perhaps I will look them out when I get back. Thanks for the comment.
I used to live, not far from the factory where these were built, they were a common site, on test flights, there used to be one on display at Blackpool airport, good shot Les.
Les Auld: I remember the one in Blackpool Frank, thanks for the comment.
I remember seeing this at Cosworth many years ago....very creepy when the bomb doors opened!
Les Auld: She has a great sound to her as well Bill, thanks for the comment.
We'd planned to visit the show this year but then went off to Dorset for a week instead, very good shot Les.
Les Auld: It was a good show Brian and the Vulcan was the icing on the cake. Thanks for the comment.
