Nice pictures! Looks in pretty good nick! Reminds me of when the airport has it open day for the airshow and the Vulcan would taxi about.

Thanks. She does look great, especially compared to how she was back during those open days in that very dark camo. I have some photos from the twilight run earlier in the year I could post too.

Please do! Always liked XL426 as it was the first time I saw a Vulcan that was able to taxi.

Twilight pics then... the runs were just after sunset so had to bump up the ISO, half an hour earlier and the light was/would have been incredible.

Lovely photos. I take it you were in a very different vantage point to the rest of the crowd?

All taken from outside the fence. The crowds in the background of the first set are from the spot where the second set were taken and vice-versa.

Great Pictures Dan. She looks better now than she did in service.
