Amazing interview with former Vulcan crew member Peter West on this morning's programme when he explained how V-bombers were at one point on 5 minute readiness at Coningsby during the Cuban missile Crisis. Have a listen:

Aviation Waffle / Duxford 2012

Hope XH558 has a safe flight to and from Duxford, and puts on a good display at the airshow, whatever time that will be.  I hope I will find out how close she was to where I will be when I log back in on Saturday evening.

It was 1 year ago today that Flight Lieutenant Jon Egging passed away. Gone but still not forgotten.

Vulcan Village / RAF Waddington
« on: June 25, 2012, 06:00:25 PM »
I have just been looking at the tour section on the website, and it still mentions that aircraft tours will happen at RAF Waddington.  Can this entry for RAF Waddington be removed please?
I may look at going on a tour at Doncaster (dependant on an answer to my email), as I will not see the aircraft display at all this year :(  :(.

If this topic is in the wrong section, please move to the correct place.

Engineering / Bomb Doors
« on: July 13, 2011, 11:21:30 PM »
Why is there an indent in the end of the bomb doors?  Is it to clear something in the bomb bay or what?
Image of what I am asking about is below (taken of the bomb doors on XJ824)

It is only on the front end and not the rear end.
