In the late 70’s and very early 80’s Vulcan’s would occasionally operate from RAF Wyton.

As a boy of 10/11 years old I would cycle with my friends to where the main road passed near the end of the runway. We would then get to the perimeter fence which was only a few hundred feet from the end of the runway.

When the Vulcan’s were landing the traffic lights were activated to stop road traffic, however we were directly under the aircraft as it landed. The Vulcan’s would be a matter of a few 10’s of feet above us – an awesome sight and sound.

It wouldn’t take long for the MOD police to show up and shoo us off – of course we would wait until they drove away before going back for more!
