please see comment below from Martin. Super pics from Scottish airshow yesterday! Thanks !

My friend, who flew off to Australia for good, today, was a maintenance ground crew on the then quite secretive Vulcan bombers in the 1950’s. His work, along with thousands of others, in my opinion, helped to keep the peace during the cold war. The Vulcan had tremendous distance capability and was designed to carry Nuclear weapons .I have only ever seen one once at an airshow (in the ’60s?). It flew low over a landing strip. Awesome! I will forward the pics and info to my old chum to keep him interested when the jet lag wears off.
