The third one with Sam scratching his head would make a good one for the "caption" game.

Lurvly photos. 558 is photogenic isn't she. :D  :D

I don\'t want a second childhood. I\'m still enjoying the first one.





I\'m retired.
I was tired yesterday, and I\'m tired again today.

Excellent picks MR.  Looks very lonely in the hangar.  No Chippy, Tonkas, Hawk or other friends for company.

That's it.  You people have held me back long enough.  I'm going to clown college.

Great pictures.

It's odd seeing the floor in a hangar as when we used to go to the airshows you couldn't see them for people and stalls! :lol:

Nice to see the "Old Boots" again Rick, great pictures. No problems with funny lighting this time eh!!!! ;)  ;)

It looks like Doncaster & surrounding venues have really taken XH558 under their wings so to speak :D  :D

Thanks for posting those Mackrick - lovely to see her in what will hopefully become her cosy new indoor home.

Love the one of Sam - is that the first page of the owners manual he's reading, "Dear customer, thank you for your purchase of this Avro Vulcan.  With care it will give many years of excellent service......."   :D  :D
