Vulcans at Waddington

Long shot but after reading the Vulcans at Scampton thread,I wondered if anyone had a note of the Vulcans at Waddington between 1/2/75 and 15/3/75.I was working on and around the base but somewhere along the way the notes went missing(probably in the toolbox I handed back)

Thanks

Re: exercise chameleon

Thanks Chris sun was playing havoc and by the time we got a good look it was too far away.Didnt look as if it was heading for Dundee but they do sometimes do quite tight turns near the bridges.

Thanks again

fine in a city....what happens elsewhere though?
Simple you tow a huge battery behind you on a trailer and recharge it at a local Post Office (if you can find one)might need to queue though.

I was at the Rangers Celtic match when 66 people died and we didn't know about it until we stopped for beer at Stirling .We had 3 buses that day and got routed all through Glasgow to get out due to emergency services priorities.We thought it was just bother as usual.Between 1415 and 1430 a few of us...

Re: Tornado farewell flypast February 2019

Like quid21 my photos at Leuchars aren`t as good as they could be as I was too distracted by the amount of people there and just watching the aircraft for the last time.It was pretty amazing when standing at the end of the runway to turn round and see the amount of people on the railway bridge at th...
