Four Vulcans XM657, XL427, XM575 and XM648 are about to scramble at the last airshow where Vulcans were present in great numbers. It is a pity that the sound was not saved and attached as in my memory I feel the ground shake. It will be great to see one of these aircraft in the air again soon.
This was the last airworthy Mosquito and it was owned by British Aerospace. First flying in 1940 the Mossie was a very effective, fast all wooden aircraft and over 7000 were built. Tragically, this aircraft crashed and was destroyed killing both crew at Barton, Manchester during a display on 27th July 1996.
This aircraft was actually still operated by British Aerospace at the time and is carrying a special livery as the first F.2. This is a panned shot on Kodachrome 25 with the aircraft about to take-off with full re-heat.
