When the Vulcan did its final fast and low flypast at Throckmorton last weekend it pulled up on full power and there was a definite deep thump from one of its engines as it was climbing. I was under it and it didnt sound right. Wonder if this is related to the poss engine tech issue?

Dont panic. The forecast for tomorrow is 16-17oC and dry with light cloud until mid-evening and then thicker cloud arriving later.
