and about 2 hours later after three sets of blades flight she finally departed and i watched until she was just a dot in the distance, I could still see her through my camera viewfinder and this was my final view of 558 in flight - thank you for all the memories, a great 8 years

Guy Martin was one of the Blades passengers on the first round of flights, he got talking to Jane and ended up posing for photos with some club members outside the restaurant

Awesome pics!

(Although it has to be said that even the grainiest low definition photo is a masterpiece if it has XH558 in it!)

thanks for the comments guys, much appreciated.

If anybody is interested I'm running a photo competition on civilian aviation (where I'm an admin) for photos of the Vulcan since the restoration in 2007. I know what you're thinking - 'civil' well the registration is G-VLCN ;)  anyway I'm offering a canvas of the winning photo if you want to have a go: http://www.civilianaviation.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=110&t=22999

I'd contacted Guy Martin's Agent some time ago suggesting that XH558's last season flight was something that Guy might try to get involved with. I'm glad to see that he has!

Any idea who filled the other seats as three formations of four Blades took part in the event ?,I ask because I contacted the Blades Phil Aiken in April to try and book a flight that we had agreed a price on in 2014,he passed on my email to Michael Trotter and I never received a reply !Ah well,my retirement fund has now bought me a holiday and new car instead but it would have been nice to get a reply even if it was going to be a refusal.

My guess would be that they'd have had a few top cameramen in some of those 'passenger' seats making quality recordings for posterity, (and DVD sales).
