Been too busy and haven't won any thickets this year - I am buying one for next year as they are flying a Vulcan

I know that area qute well - the first time I went to Fairford was about 24 years ago to watch a friends band play there.

I used to leave near Gloucester and knew the Cotswolds very well.

Air shows are fascinating - I went to Cosford as well last year and it took 3 hours to get out of the car park and I had to drive through road cones to escape in a sensible time

Used to see a Vulcan every time I went to work (not flying though) but it's gone for scrap now. Would interesting to see one actually airborn.

Ahhhh, Cosford and the Vulcan. Very fond memories of my RAF days. Shackletons, Jaguars, Phantom F4's and Tornados too. Did my training at Cosford - Got banned from most the Pubs in Albrighton!!!!.
