Fantastic clip of this saddest of events, nice to see the guys in the back too.

I fancy Martin's blink rate was higher than usual, especially on that last ever landing!

A little time has gone by and I still don't have the words...

I haven't cried yet either but I know it's coming at some point.

I'm just delighted that we managed to give 558 those extra years in the sky & were able to share her stunning spectacle with so many folk who would otherwise have never understood what a Vulcan really is.

We did extremely well - Trust, Staff, Club, ad hoc supporters, all of us and we should never, ever forget it - be very proud of yourselves each & every one.

Big hugs from Eddie

Well that tipped me over the edge, either that or the video gets blurry towards the end (and not just from the water arch).

Thanks must also go to the vision of David Walton, the drive of Dr Pleming, the skill of the flight crews, and the commentaries of Sean Maffet, who all brought such pleasure to millions.  No matter how many times I saw XH558 I could not help but shake my head in wonderment at her power, her grace and her beauty.

I understand Little Gransden have made a donation of £60,558.00 to Children in Need.  The tribute to the Vulcan was intentional despite not being able to appear there this year.

An excellent film with a fantastic piece of music!

What got me was the thump on Martins shoulder!

Now I must go and wash my face a dry my eyes.
