Vulcan at Duxford
« on: June 18, 2011, 05:52:53 PM »
Does the Vulcan at Duxford have all her engines still fitted?  There are NO covers on the tailpipes or at the front of the wings.

Looks like you can see the back end of an engine in this pic

Thought it was, but wasn't sure.  Thank you.

But in this one  http://www.flickr.com/photos/16521384@N ... 860444081/  The jet pipe looks to be a long way up in the tunnel, so maybe she does not have all four fitted.

you have reminded me I'm meant to be sorting them out with a copy of the engine preservation and storage AP so they must have a couple in there.

Interesting to see the blocks they have placed under the wheels and the collars on the legs.  Duxford borrowed our jacks and trestles after we moved out of Lyneham so they could get 825's weight off the tyres.

Thank you Sam.  Glad to be of assistance.  Nice to see Martin Wither's name on the entrance door.  Hope to see XH558 at Waddington in less than 2 weeks time.
