Fantastic job everyone.  Good to hear she's taken to the skies for the first time in 2012, and twice in one day!

The suspense is  ki l l i n g  me!
Did she take to the skies? Or did she shudder and back up when the hangar doors opened to reveal the crappy rain?

Is there any truth to the rumour that she will be doing a flyby over the National Memeorial Arboretum 20th may for the Falklands Memorail?

Feel a little foolish now i have spotted the other two pages...

Glad to hear she made it into the air.

I've not seen a Vulcan fly since i was a kid in the 70s. Can't wait to relive the experience!!!

On Sturday 28 at 2.25 I walked out of my back door to wash some brushes, and she flew right over my back garden on her way to Waddington just up the hill fro me. :D  :D  :D Used to get this all the time when the fleet was active.  Great to see her.
