    Vulcan Flies at Woodford 30/03/13

    Hi All,

    Well, that probably got you looking - A Vulcan flying at Woodford, today. The Vulcan in question is a rather large 20ft wingspan model. Here are a few pictures from today's flights.


    Model waiting to fly, the old A V Roe Co. Ltd hangar in the background. That's soon to be moved closer to where the 1:1 scale Vulcan has been moved to.

    Told you it was big!


    Feel the heat and power of this enormous model!

    Overflying XM603.

    TTFN,

    That's freakin' cool! I particularly like the one with the 1:1 model.

      Outstanding pictures & model, in a couple of the shots you'd think it was a the real deal.

      Also liking the the anti-flash paint job
      Sometimes it's better to be a bumblebee than it is to be Professor Heinkel.

          That's a helluva model and all the better for being finished in the original anti-flash white. Do you know what the power source is?

          Keep smiling - it's never as bad as you think!!

            Thanks guys. Certainly is an impressive model - you don't realize just how big it is till you're close up.

            I quite liked this landing shot - I made the runway narrower, to give a better aircraft/tarmac ratio.




            All that money spent on resurfacing the runway for the Nimrod project and the only aircraft to use it are models!

            TTFN,
            Neil

              Very impressive indeed. Please though chaps, aeroplanes live in a hangar, your coat goes on a hanger.
