Going Up! What a shot Bangers! Bewdy! – course – could be coming down ~:0) VivaChas!
Going down !! An amazing sight as she lands, the pilot keeps the aircraft with the nose in the air for as long as possible to use the huge delta wing to slow down. Thanks very much Chas.
Thanks very much John, the most popular aircraft in the UK this year !!
Thanks very much Gene, really appreciate it.
Touchdown! And you were perfectly positioned for it, too, as this beautiful delta-wing bomber kissed the tarmac. Have never had the chance to photograph a Vulcan, but I was given the privilege of sitting in the cockpit of one of the world’s most iconic fighters!
Thanks very much David. This is an amazing aircraft to see fly and great to take pictures of.
Great treatment on this really excellent capture Nigel!!! Bill
Thanks very much Bill, a much loved aircraft over here.
Super shot. Do they still use the tail chute on landing nowadays? Cheers Neil
Thanks very much Neil, for this landing the pilot kept the aircraft on it’s back wheels for as long as possible, using the huge delta wing to slow down. This is the first time I have seen it land so I don’t really know when they use the the chute, shorter runways I guess.
Nice one Nigel !!
Thanks very much Colin, glad I took the D3100 with me with a shorter lens.
Like the sky. I presume it’s original…
Thanks very much, all my skies are original, just not necessarily from the same image.
