My memory is watching XH558’s V Force fly by at Woodford. Brought back memories of August 1952. I was 11 years old when VX770 flew for the first time. We had seen the small research deltas fly many times, but were amazed to see this huge white moth. What a sight!

Unknown to me, my future husband was also watching during those heady days, I was thrilled and lucky to see XH558’s display at RIAT fair ford with my daughter and two Grandsons.

Sadly my dear husband died in 1997 so never knew his grandchildren. In memoriam for fellow Vulcan enthusiast Road Forster.
