A hodgepdoge of other random aircraft. And some form of Lizard we found chilling in the shade of the landing gear.
Apologies for my absence over the passed week or so, I have been in Sussex, England. on board a 747 for a film shoot. I will do a couple of re-blogs today and will get back to this as soon as I can. Also wow More followers than I had ever expected from this! Thank you so very Much!
The Vulcan has a huge part of British history and stood as a warning to the USSR during the cold war.
This charity keeps this Vulcan in the air, if you are in the area I encourage you to take a look. I am sure it will be worth it..
