Someone smart once said "Don't cry that it's gone, rejoice that it was." That said, there really are some things you wish would endure forever.

Still blows my mind that there’s only 11 years between the first flight of the Lancaster and the Vulcan.

60 year old design. A thing of beauty. Makes the hairs on my neck stand up. Bravo.

That might be the smoothest landing I've ever seen.

In the 1970's my dad and I tried in vain to get to an airshow at RAF Leuchars in Fife. I remember how disappointed I was when we were still stuck in traffic, not in sight of the airfield, when the show began. About half an hour later we watched a Vulcan do a fly by, then go vertical on full afterburners. Seeing the V-bird in full plan profile was amazing. And the sound of those olympus engines was thunderous. After seeing that we just turned around and went home.

Quite extraordinary British engineering. So proud. Yes it’s old but it still works!

Remember, before everyone gets in a pissing contest about how good or how unnecessary this aircraft was, IT WAS USED AS A DETERRENT. It worked well wouldn't you say?

It's amazing how long it holds it's nose up after landing and uses itself as a massive airbrake.

If you asked a kid in the 1970’s to draw a “jet plane”. They would draw

That is how you land with utter control and confidence in your natural ability. Nose up after the rear gear touches deck, hardly a burst of rubber. British pilot 👍

My God we knew how it do it back then. Still stirs the emotions.

I used to work at the factory that made these but many years after they had finished production. I was working there in the mid 1980s but every year a Vulcan would come back and do a demonstration thank you flight for all the factory. What I remember was it coming down the runway at low altitude, then the pilot would point the nose up and turn up the gas. The power and noise was simply incredible and rabbits everywhere thought that the world had come to an end - 100s of them !!. They would come running out of their burrows at breakneck speed thinking "wtf was that?". Fabulous memory.

Could this be the greatest looking aircraft ever produced given its operational era.

...and that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you do aerodynamic braking.

I remember when Spectre stole one of these with two atomic bombs (MOS-type)!
