Hi guys,

Thought these might be of interest for some, probably the best afternoon with a camera I had last year!

Back in October last year I had the chance to join the Aviation PhotoCrew for one of the last air to air sorties with XH558. We flew out of Duxford, met the Vulcan after it's final airshow display at Shuttleworth and then dragged in back past Newmarket and Cambridge.

Larger versions on my Flickr page if you want to see that - but I can post more here if desired.

I'm not going to forget this for a long time!

All are excellent, but number 3 is my fav!


When you see my camera gear you'll think I'm a pro.
When you see my photos you'll know that I'm not.

Really great photos. I have always thought the Vulcan was such a beautiful aircraft. I think it is probably the loudest I've ever been around too.


5D,20D, some lenses and stuff

Louder then the F-4 Phantom?
