[Archived] Blackpool Air Show

Recommended Posts

Blackpool Air Show on Sunday saw the last flight of the Vulcan Bomber off the Fylde coast. 2015 is the last season for the remaining airworthy Vulcan. Its a beast of British engineering as anyone who has seen and heard it will know. The noise made on its spiral climb I can only liken to a thunderclap and its delta wing shape gives it a mean appearance. Originally conceived in the 50's, only 10 years after the Lancaster bomber and designed to fly at an altitude of 50,000 - 60,000 ft, it shows how quickly British aviation engineering developed in that decade. I believe it had the same engines as Concorde.
