Ex-Vulcan Engineer
« on: April 25, 2012, 08:53:47 AM »
Had a drink with ex-Vulcan Engineer Roy Kernaghan last night.  He's just started work at a friend's place (working on linear accelerators :shock: ).  He brought along an old photo album (one of many apparently) rammed with old pics & cuttings of his time in the RAF (Waddington, Luqa among many others, and Vulcans & Pumas mainly).  He had one particularly good original low-level air-to-air pic of XM657 (the last Vulcan) in flight, which I said would probably be of interest to many (next club mag perhaps).

Just by chance, I had my latest Vulcan magazine in the car, so I've given it to him (I hadn't even read it, so will need another :| ).  He's been following 558 on the website, but hasn't signed up for the newsletters, and isn't a club member either yet.  He was so impressed with the mag that he's going to join the club and get involved a bit more.

I'm masking my indifference with a veneer of detachment

He should be coming to the V force reunion this weekend at Newark. He would love it.

Ex Club Co-Chair
Worked flat out to give XH558 as long a life as possible! Hoping for a positive future.

Hello MrTim,
Could you ask him if he has any photographs from his time at RAF Luqa, Malta, could he take a look at
http://raf-luqa.weebly.com and send me any photographs I can post in the galleries.
There's a link to my email address at the top fo the photograph gallery pages and there's also the contact us page.
Thanks very much, I'd appreciate it.
David
