Just arrived - like the look of all the threads - especially a Vulcan only thread. Look forward to finding my way round and making a few contributions.

Thanks - I think I've already picked up on the sense of humour! ;)

Oh, I've been around the block a few times and have been keen on aircraft since I was a lad in the early fifties - hence the moniker. Never flew professionally, and regretted it a bit, but that's along time ago, so now I just enjoy going to shows and museums and finding out more from people with much more knowledge than me. :)

Ahhh the early fifties - remember it well :D :D

Made the same mistake myself - should have gone to a flying occupation but ended up in retailing - BIG mistake :p ;)

Hello FF, welcome to Iconic.

We're not really mad, it's just an act which we've all perfected. ;)
