Photo Comment

Having received a permit to fly just two days earlier, this was the first flying display by a Vulcan for 15 years. What a stroke of genius to fly it in formation with PA474, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Lancaster - probably the two most significant RAF bombers in the air together
