Avro Vulcan

Back on 21 September I enthused like an apron nerd about the efforts to get this fifty year old aeroplane airborne again. On 18 October they achieved this. I may be missing a point here, but like a favourite band or the bagpipes, I can't believe that the feel good factor I get from it may not be shared by everyone else.

So test yourself. Wait until your boss has gone for lunch, put on the headphones, turn the volume up, then click the link below.


  1. I'm with you on this one. All that oomph, and the enjoying of it, drops an anvil through me customary feckless equivocating diffidence.

  2. Glad I'm not alone. The Planet dies a little more every time it leaves the garage, but hey - at least we're raging at the dying of the light.
