This was what Jen & I heard three or four time a year

Post by nordog on Fri Jan 08, 2016 4:58 pm

At RAF Scampton in the early seventies ether early morning or late evening. We were lucky living as we were in Lincoln 5 miles away but if the weather was not good we heard the noise and as they flew over head skirting the city.
Watch your volume level.

Sure a lovely experience to have seen then flying overhead. Fantastic as well for those piloting them. The power from them. 
I never realised how large they are until seeing this video.

Yes very big, on my first day being shown the hanger there was just two Vulcan's in there and I was told that they could not carry much more than the Lancaster would carry max 22,000 pound.
The last day that I was in that hanger again two Vulcan's and squeezed in-between the two tails and across the the hanger was the Blackpool Lancaster's fuselage, no wings or tail plane.

So very interesting for you our Nordog to have gone there to see them. I wonder were you able to sit in the cockpit?

Not only have I sat in the cockpit but have painted the mat black paint that is used inside them with & with out the canopy on. Not a lot of room I can tell you but ideal for you.

Wow, that would have been great for you our Nordog to sit in the cockpit. Painting inside too. I would fit in perfectly then to fly the Vulcan.  Laughing bow
