XH558 at Headcorn
« on: August 15, 2015, 08:46:40 PM »
a few pics of the display at Headcorn today which I attended, was nice to say hello to Jane and Malcolm for the first time for ages:





















and in this pic the trees seem to be forming a heart shape to say ' we love the vulcan '


I also took a video of the final pass which I have posted on the club Facebook page

They're great pics. To think, oh yes a while back, I can remember when all they had were Buffalo.

A friend of mine went to Headcorn (Lashenden) - he had never seen the Vulcan before - he sent me this message.

"The Vulcan display on Saturday at Lashenden was awesome ! The aerodrome was packed.
