Wings & Wheels 2015

Wings & Wheels, Dunsfold airfield 2015.  A friend of mine has a deep and undying love for the Vulcan Bomber, (a big delta wing death machine designed to deliver nuclear nastiness at the drop of the hat).  2015 was the last year that the Vulcan could fly, there just isn't the knowledge to certify that its still airworthy anymore, its too complicated, and was only built 5 years after the Lancaster bomber!!!  Anyway my friend emmigrated a few years ago to the penal colonies, but he came back, one of the reasons being to see the Vulcan fly before it was grounded permanently.  It was going to make an appearance at Wings & Waves, at Dunsfold Airfield, (home of the Top Gear Test Track no less), but unfortunately it was a no show, due to bad weather at its base. On the plus side there was this lovely Ford Anglia sleeper, (not sure whether "sleeper" is appropriate due to the fuck big rear wheels on show).

Now I know its a free country and all, but when you see someone kneeling down, pointing a camera, clearly about to take a photo, its always a common courtesy to just wait, let them take the photo, and then carry on.  I just gave up, and took the photo anyway, nice boots.
