Avro Vulcan will fly again!

I fell in love with this bird when I saw one fly at AAFB Guam on two different occasions.

Brilliant Video, I've only ever seen her once and that was something I have never forgot... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

On a side note whilst I was on that site I noticed this paper folding video, it's certainly something to watch... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Not for anyone with a nervous disposition though... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

That link you just posted just spawned a pop up from drivecleaner on me. Now I know to press alt F-4 but if anyone clicked anything in that popup (even the close button is fake) they are now infected. Smart.

That rocks, be great to see her on the air show circuit next year. Any plans to get the Elvington Victor or any of the EE Lightnings airborne?

Didn't happen to me this time, but when it has happened to me I just disconnect from the net and then close it down.

If I got my hands on the guys who made it... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

Anyway, my memories of the Vulcan were from seeing it at the Abbotsford airshow in Vancouver growing up.

Marvellous bird she is.

I remember well the last time I saw a Vulcan at an airshow.

Back in the 80's at RAF Halton, impressive the way the ground shakes and it's graceful flight.

Looking forward to seeing it in action again http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.
