As a truck driver all my working life I fell in love with the Vulcans seeing them fly around Lincolnshire.

One air show I remember is one where Concorde should have taken centre stage as this was when she was on test still and not in service. For me though it was a day when not only a Vulcan but also a Victor were displaying and after there solo displays they done a pass down the runway joined by the refuelling hose.

To see the Victor refuelling the Vulcan like this knocked the Concorde into second spot. How I wish I still had the programme. It is going to be a sad day not to see the Vulcan or any of the V Force in the sky again.
