There's ona at Southend airport that an enthusiasts (anoraks) group occasionally take a trip up and down the taxi-way. They're hoping to get it airworthy:

Well, they have got all the other planes to consider:

200 odd Jaguars
100 odd Tornados

Plus all the Rapiers, RAF Regiment berets, desks, comfy chairs, air conditionig units, big tents, XL size belts etc etc.

Parcel Force couldn't cope.

I almost feel sorry for the RAF Regt - almost. At least the Officers have some prospects - I mean the Gunners are always looking for average quality NCOs. Of course this would mean the RAF Regiment Officers improving their standard of dress before being allowed into an RA Cpls' Mess. Even they don't allow grey, slip-on shoes :lol:

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but wasnt the Vulcan complete shite even when new. Come to think of it, apart from the Harrier, when did we last have a decent combat aircraft? :?

It was the Valient that was utter shite.

Last decent combat aircraft was UK designed TSR2. Cancelled by Labour government in the 60's. :cry:

Indeed. The noise of them was amazing. This particular specimen is in very poor condtion and is very badly corroded, after being outside for 20 years. Sadly it is fit only for high grade scrap.

This thread allows me to deploy this hoary old chesnut:
What do Port Stanley Airport and Spocks mother have in common?
They've both been f**ked by Vulcans...!
