I'd like to have seen this, but I'm working later, and Leics. is about a hundred miles away.

Saw the last Vulcan scramble, quite a few years ago now, in Yorkshire. There were three of them, and the noise was overwelming, you could feel the vibration in your chest, fantastic experience.

Low quality but still so very good to see.

Judging from other shots I saw this was well covered by the media, so expect to see it on TV tonight.

BBC News has already feature it on the news site http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I wish I had been able to see that. Now I'm suffering from a bad case of Vulcan Envy.

Film of it taking off that was shown on Sky news


I could have flown down today to watch it from the Air but didn't....... they had a birdseye view of it taking off..... Was a bit busy at work, so elected to stay and finish off what I was doing. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Bravo to our Brit cousins who restored this magnificent aircraft for us all to admire. Incredible.

Kinda makes up for all the odd stuff you guys do to the language......heh heh.

I do hope that some of you that possibly could, got to see her fly, I tried to give you the details of the flight as soon as possible, I managed to get the times online a few hours before take off, but managed to give you all a days notice of its impending flight http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks to all my collegues and friends within the Industry that fed me the info http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I tried my best for you all...
