I am honored and thrilled to announce that MAJ SEDA has very graciously awarded a FEATURE to this image in the group "AEROPLANE" Many thanks to you Maj, that's greatly appreciated.

New York, NY - United States

A big big THANK YOU goes out to A HERMANN for very kindly awarding a FEATURE to this image in the group "BIRDS OF PREY - WAR PLANES"

Cheltenham, Gl - United Kingdom

I hope you do not mind, but I thought a bit of background info would be useful for all those, which are not familiar with this beauty, the "Vulcan". The "Avro Vulcan", or "Hawker Siddeley Vulcan" was developed in 1956 for the RAF. A total of 136 Vulcan were build, and delivered to the RAF. March 1984 marked the retirement of the Vulcan. Since retirement by the RAF, one of the B.2 XH558 type, "The Spirit of Great Britain" has been restored, and is in use by air shows, two other B.2s, XL426 and XM655, were kept in ground condition for runs and demonstrations at Wellesbourne Mountford Airfield. A very nice presentation. Featured at Birds of Prey. v8

Don't mind at all, good info. Thanks so much for the feature too, that's truly appreciated, cheers.

Cottenham, Ca - United Kingdom

I saw this awesome beast a few years ago at the Bournemouth Air Show, it flew out over the Channel and then opened up to climb. Even from about ten or more miles distant the noise was like thunder.

Chris Lord replied:

She sure makes a lot of noise! But what a plane, just an amazing sight and it's such a shame they can't keep her flying anymore, thanks for a great comment Mike, cheers.

West Chester, PA - United States

Spectacular colours Chris. We used to have the V-bombers stationed near us at RAF Marham; amazing machines indeed!

Chris Lord replied:

These planes are an incredible sight but I'm not sure I would want to live that close to that tremendous noise, thanks very much Richard. (When I was in school (England circa 1963-4) our art master's name was Richard Reeve! I never saw anything he had created except for bruises on a guy's forehead he made with a yardstick! His idea of art was to make us spend hours drawing gill-sans lettering with a ruler and compass. No reflection on your good self of course. :-)) Cheers.
