RIAT 2015

Final tour of the United Kingdom of the Avro Vulcan Bomber

This is the last year that the Avro Vulcan Bomber will be flying, due to the costs and the shortage of spare parts.  A big shame as she is a much loved aircraft by enthusiasts everywhere.  This “Old Girl” was one of the two which flew to the Falkland Islands to bomb the runway at Port Stanley during the “Falklands War”.   During her display, she was given a very fitting send off by the Red Arrows, the RAF’s Display Team.

The show itself was very well attended this year, with tickets sold out well before the show actually started, even though the attendance list was not as good as previous years.  The reason for this was all down to the Vulcan’s final tour of the UK.

The campsite we were on was packed solid, it’s location perfect for viewing the aircraft.  We were in a field next to the ‘Landing Lights’ for the main runway.  The aircraft flew over us for runs down the runway for the main show, and when they came in to land.

Images from the show can be found in my RIAT 2015 album, hope you like them.
