    Sweet shot Cliff – love the cropping!

  • Thanks Spence, the sky was a bit flat, it does add more dynamism, and the exhaust heat stands out more

    the best aircraft ever, great shot

  • I would not disagree, the Vulcan Roar is right up there with the Merlin Engine for me. changed the title of the shot from Cold War Veteran, really she was a Cold War winner along with the B52
