My very first air show was RAF Finningley in 1977.

We got there a little late, the display had already started with the new Tornado doing a brilliant slot. Then… Alarms sounded, and 4, yes 4 Vulcans did emergency starts and take-offs the noise was awesome, you could actually feel it in your chest.

The sight of those gorgeous deltas climbing away banking over to the left imprinted indelibly on my mind! Every time I hear the howl, I can picture those 4. Beautiful, powerful and really giving meaning to the word awesome!
