Blackpool Airport
« on: October 15, 2014, 02:53:31 PM »
ive seen on the BBC News that Blackpool Airport will soon be closing and at the top of the article appears a Vulcan Bomber which was at the entrance.

Anyone know what happened to it?  I really hope it didnt go for scrap.

It was chopped up and scrapped years ago.
