Friday pictures: Vulcan into a stormy sky

Back in July, I featured a whole series of pictures of the Avro Vulcan that returned to flight for this summer’s airshow season. Vulcan XH558 delivers amazing performances by all accounts, and I very much wish to see it in person, but until then I rely on the photographers at Flickr to capture its appearances, and they do not disappoint. For more background on the Vulcan, her V-bomber sisters, and this one’s return to flight, please click here.

This week’s shot is by mjenner10, and he has many more aviation pictures in his stream. I encourage you to take a look for yourself.

Update: Oh no! They’re running out of money. Agh!

If you like this, I encourage you to check out this summary of all of the aviation photography I have featured here.

    Thanks for posting my picture, it truely is an amazing plane and I think the sky was indeed apt for a cold-war aircraft such as the Vulcan, particularly given it’s situation. It definately doesn’t deserve to be prematurely consigned to history (once again).

    If anyone wants to know more about this aircraft and its long-range attack on Stanley Airfield that opened Britain’s response to the Falklands war I thoroughly recommend reading Vulcan 607 by Rowland White, see here for a link:

    It’s an account of a real-life event, but it’s also a tense and entertaining book at the same time.

    Cheers,

    Matt
