Hi

 

We have the Avro Vulcan B2, XL 319 that served with the Dam Buster squadron (617?) parked outside of Nissan Car plant up here at Sunderland. Used to love to see them at Sunderland air show.

At the start of the Falklands War they flew an epic non stop journey down to the Falklands to bomb Port Stanley Airfield .........

Out of all the bombs dropped two hit the runway, which was good going for that 'old' girl. Mind you, the holes she left were huge, I have a picture somewhere of me in a bomb crater down there.

The sister ship to SS Great Britain is down in Stanley.
