Vulcan Test Flight - History Channel 3pm Thursday

#1
For anyone of my vintage who can remember the mighty Vulcan. There is a one hour documentary this Thursday at 1500hrs. It is unique footage of the first flight of auld tin triangle after her being on the ground for 14yrs.

I have decided to throw a mini party and am going to have a few of the chaps round for afternoon drinks & food and watch the 1hr documentary.

Can't wait to see her on the airshow scene this year.

Make sure you Sky Plus it or record it on a DVD.

Can't wait to see it. How sure can we be that it will be up to a full airshow season? Must cost a hefty trouser full of cash to keep it in the air.

I watched the proud owner of a Shackleton fire up one engine for a ground test, letting it tick over for a few minutes.

The one engine drank £600 of fuel and there was no way the engine or props would be considered airworthy.

Worth every penny on another level, mind.

Hopefully it will be bittorrent or one of these web based TV servers. I will ask some of the IT bods tommorow at work.

These things are normally available free online within 48hrs of transmission.

I will post some links for folk overseas or who did not record it to watch it as a streamed movie online.
