    Watch the vid and wait for the third pass...

    There will never be anything to match the gut wrenching feeling of raw power of this Beauty though... If you've never seen one for real I pity you for being born to late...
    The only thing that can beat the emotive feeling it gives is perhaps a Shuttle launch...

    Very, very, very cool plane. One of those and a Vulcan and you'd have yourself quite an airshow.

    What a monster. Saw one fly at a 2002 airshow in Edmonton, it was at least as loud as a B1-B. I'm really glad I took the kids to see it.

    When I was 5 I saw one take off on a school trip to Heathrow (we were on the roof so we got a good look, flipping loud)

    Saw them a couple of times since then, but on the day of the last ever flight, I actually heard it go past, but was in the bathroom at the time

    Am I the only one who was waiting for the announcer to say "Ah em coming for you, Reecky Bobby?"

    Seriously, as a Yank who's seen the Concorde a time or two, I'm still more impressed with the B-1B in a low pass, although otherwisw I have to agree with the fellow who reveres the Vulcan.

    cheers
