They don’t make them like this any more
I took my son to the RNAS Culdrose Air-day today. For me its a sort of rite of passage as my Father took me to air shows and now, I am taking my son. There is something about being a boy and seeing loads of aircraft flying around. I still get a tingle up my spine when I hear the roar of a merlin engine from a Spitfire and see it glide though the air. (this engine was also used in the Hurricane, Lancaster and the Mustang)
For me the highlight of the day was seeing the Avro Vulcan Bomber. I remember this aircraft from my childhood. Not just as a display aircraft, but in operational RAF squadrons. Seeing one flying around is impressive, but seeing a couple in formation is just mind blowing.
All in all it was a great day. The weather held out. We used the Park and Ride service that was put on and found it quick, easy and without hassle.
Below, are three more pictures of this great piece of British engineering that I took today. Here also is the link to more information on this Aircraft
