This seems like a good place for my first post! :-) :vulc:

This is my favourite shot of the day of the first and last time I ever saw XH558 in flight, at the Shuttleworth Uncovered Airshow

I never got too many decent shots of XH558, but this one is one of the few that came out well :)

Wouldn't win any contest but I always liked this shot of XH558 low over the Irish Sea as see displayed at the Newcastle, Co. Down, Airshow back in 2013, a throwback to a time when the Vulcan had a maritime strike role.

My favourite shots of the old Lady, all post restoration. Biggest regrets was never getting pics of her down in the valleys or from Beachy Head.

My favourite moment from that Saturday at RIAT was having XH558 pass low over my head with her bomb-bay open :rock:

This one's just become a rejected submission from an online photo library cos 'they've got enough Vulcan material' (shame most of it's junk but hey-ho) so might as well pop it in this thread...
