    Brize Families Day, with Added Vulcan!

    Well the sun shone and the big bird(s) didnt break so all went according to plan.

    The Vacher Hurricane





    The Falcons jumped from a Chinook, which then went onto display





    Selected highlights from the QBF







    The main event

















    I have to say that a Martin Withers Vulcan display is a real "howler"! Its great.

    Then the playmates came out to join in the fun







    Finally, the landing!

    Yeah, she roared through the Charity Moth day at Halton as well, pulled up for a great wingover, giving us a plan view of the aeroplane, and setting off the car alarms. Just like the good old days

    Brilliant set of images. Particularly like the Vulcan turning with the sun hitting the wings, superb contrast. The Chinook shot is also awesome.

    Great job!
