I  know I have not been on the Forum for a while but I would like just to add my comments to the list.

Thank you very much to all the Vulcan Engineers who with their skill kept XH558 in the air for 8 years and to the Engineers who put her together to give us in the Club "The Dream we wished for" and to introduce the Vulcan to many people who had not see her fly.

It is a sad time for everyone especially the people who have lost their jobs, I wish them luck for the future and I hope our paths cross in the near future.

Thoroughly enjoyed last nights programme  :D :D Well done everyone involved

As Mags wrote it was so nice to see all the people we know and shared this epic journey with over the last 8 years + flying & the roller coaster ride of restoration and back to flight.

The "Thanks' " have been said many time since she completed her last flight, seeing her last night makes it harder to believe, even now, but I smile because "We did it"  :) :)

Julia my wife is so pleased to know she/her name was on the last flight on a Certificate, after all she has been through these last 3 years it brought a tear to her eye  :'(

I believe there is a Flying Canberra with Mid-Air Sqn which will be back on the airshow circuit next year. ;)

They had a few issues this year and off the top of my head I cannot remember why it did not fly, something about paperwork rings a bell but I could be wrong  ???

Hi Everyone,

I have seen various Final Flight Video's all very good in their own way, I enjoyed this one very much. Talking about Planes TV missing parts of the last flight!!!! Could it be they want you to buy their DVD /Blue Ray DVD? I Agree Andy it is a very sad time, but I forvone have enjoyed the last 8 years +
