Something quite extraordinary happened to the UK airshow circuit in 2009; jammed telephone lines, inundated web sites, capacity crowds, eyes skyward straining for a first glimpse of...., lumps in the throat, tears of joy, stunned silences as the subject of all this thunders onto the scene and four Bristol Siddley Olympus engines developing 60,000 lbs of thrust tear the sky apart.
PlanesTV cameras followed Vulcan to 20 locations in 2009 including continental Europe. Much of this was in clear and often spectacular weather, ideal for our High-definition powerful-lens cameras.
Exclusive access gets you behind the scenes with the crew, engineers and volunteers and our three in-cockpit cameras take you onboard for a unique view of the season finale at Southport.
