Exactly, too jerky to be taken as 'evidence' and surprised this is the only 'video' of the alleged incident...I think this has pretty much been rubbished elsewhere and on a lot of other forums, it's a shame that someone has posted this and if indeed it is cobbled together then they are subjecting a pilot who could be at risk of losing his license over false allegations. I'm sure the CAA will see it for what it is. Pilot was Kev from what I remember...

Looks convincing enough to me!

Actually, there's proof here that Tina's crew got there first:

I wish people would stop denying that the barrel roll happened.

I have photographic proof...

Me and the mrs both just watched the "Barrel Roll" ... Both said BS at the same time ..
Our Crews are too Professional to risk their Careers or the Aircraft in that way .. Plus, if they were going to have Done it ..
They'd have done it on the Final Flight with Proper Cameras running , not a Mash-up of Still Images

I came across this old thread on the internet and joined the forum to post.  I don't have an awful lot of interest in agitation but living just outside of Lincoln am used to seeing a lot of planes and the Vulcan was always a great sight before it wasn't grounded.  A couple of years ago I was out cycling between Saxilby and sturton and the Vulcan flew past me and then for the next 20 mins flew laps over the fields and repeatedly did barrel rolls.  Very sadly I didn't have my phone with meno footage or photos.  I had no idea it was capable of doing this and got off my bike and stood and watched absolutely mesmerised.  I can't remember the exact date but it was after it had been announced it would be soon grounded so possibly might tie in with approx sept/oct 2015??? Not sure.

It happened at least twice and both pilots were effectively sacked by the Trust !!
