It certainly is a spirited display.

I love this plane.  Was (almost) the star at Farnborough 2010.  Unbelievable manoeuvrability.

Looks like a baby Herc fledgling  :)

A Vulcan doing that routine on her final display would be awesome - apart from the short landing bit (obviously)!  Will our 558 bow out with a 'Big Finale'.... or a sedate display - that we have become used to over the last few years ?

No doubt time will reveal all.....  ;)

Sail on silver girl, sail on by. Your time has come to shine.

Until they get the final word on the engines it's going to be a usual routine. Probably

Hold a chicken in the air stick a deck chair up your nose, buy a jumbo jet and then bury all your clothes..........\":D\"
