Vulcan Video from RNAS Yeovilton, 21st July 2014.
« on: July 21, 2014, 11:37:42 PM »
Here's the vid of the landing from today - sorry its a tad shakey, although I do love the 'wink' from the right hand seat on the taxi back to the pan.

Very tricky landing today in a gusty crosswind.

On Saturday at the Air Day will she be taking off, doing display and then landing? Or will it just be a flying arrival from somewhere else, and then disappearing off?

I'm not 'in the know' but I think it is full display and landing. Then she will remain a guest until Culdrose later in the week. Guessing it's a lot cheaper to fly from Yeovilton to Cornwall than back up to Doncaster and then back again to the SW.

Well, she should at the very least be taking off - as I watched her landing yesterday  ;D

That sounds great, sure they'll love to see them. Hope you both have a great time at Yeovilton :-)

The flash was Martin smiling.

She will remain there to do RNAs Culdrose on Thursday before departing North, don't forget she has displays in Northern Ireland and Blackpool before Dunsfold and then the South coast again.

Spreading her charm around the UK that's the Spirit of Great Britain
