Lone Ranger by John Young. (XX)


Lone Ranger by John Young. (XX)

Sorely missed on the air display circuit, this Vulcan is pictured flying high over Niagra Falls. Used as a heavy bomber and particularly in the Falklands War of 1982, just the sound of the engines and the vibrations of the ground announced its arrival. Rumour had it that this magnificent aircraft might make a return at some time to the air display scene but this seems to be increasingly unlikely as time passes.
