Something Special Happened Today!
Today, I'm a happy man. I was invited along to Hangar 3 at Finningley where the fabulous Vulcan XH558 is housed. The reason for the visit, apart from getting up close and personal with the lovely old lady herself, was to take my model for photo's of her and the real thing.
I couldn't have asked for more. Everyone of the crew at the Vulcan tours made me incredibly welcome and took a great deal of interest in the model.
Anyhow, here's just a couple of pictures from my memorable day.

I'm so jealous that you got that close. it's too bad her air career is coming to an end. I wish I could get there to see it, but I doubt it will happen.

Yeah it was a great day. XH558 is currently up on jacks which made walking underneath her much easier. Retracts were down and crew access hatch and bomb-bay doors were open which gave me quite an in-depth look around the old girl. Photography of the Vulcan is allowed so I was kept quite busy with the camera. I find myself running out of superlatives when trying to describe this beautiful aircraft so for now, i'll shut up.

Sunday 7th July
Vulcan and Buccaneer
Today was the first outing for the Vulcan this year so, needless to say, I was quite nervous. Double-nervous in that that today was the first time the Vulcan and the latest build, the Buccaneer had been out together.
Needn't have been though because, as usual, the Vulcan flew beautifully and here's a few pictures to prove it.

Hello everyone! I do not know if someone else is watching this topic. I want to do with the size of Vulcan wing of about 180 cm 2 and the engine from Grayson Hobby 2200 kV, I have some questions.
Roy, Daz, and all who are in the flow - if you have plans, such as here [url]http://static.rcgroups.net/forums/attachments/1/1/4/0/7/1/a1959238-254-Vulcan_b2a.jpg with good resolution to print on A0 format, if you can send me? I'm interested in "side view". I already have a good plan, but only the "top view".
