    Dunno if this has been posted before. Just watched it on Netflix. Lovely. Oh, on utube it's in parts.

    Absolutely Brilliant.

    I have seen it a couple of times on PayTV and the final flyby.

    It was incredible to see so many people, all over the UK, coming out to see itís last flight.

    Like the pilot said, more came out for the Vulcan than for Concorde, which surprised me.

    Big fan of the Vulcan here, I read the book about 506 which bombed Stanley in the Falklands War,...amazing.
    But sorry, I just couldn't cop the stupid voice/attitude of whoever that "commentator" was....so I could only put up with around 5 mins of his rubbish.
    Like I said, big fan of Vulcan here, used to live not far from A V Roe in Manchester.

    I have actually seen one do a fly past at an Amberley Air show about 50 years ago.
    It was the noisiest plane I have ever heard.
    When they hit the throttle to gain altitude after a slow pass the earth shook.

    I was lucky enough to see it at the Bournemouth air show a few years back. Incredible plane to watch.
