Looks like LBA had the strong winds again, its a cracking airport for this, no doubt the passengers had a bit of a butt nip going on.

They had video on the local news yesterday - some of the landings were a little hairy!!
In memory of a very dear friend - Mike Pearson

Very fond memories of Robbie Gilvary - DTs 1st Vulcan Captain who taught DT all he knew.

Couple of arrivals at EMA were diverted to Doncaster, due to crosswinds, last night
NB; Any negative comments I post about the Vulcan are posted SOLELY to wind Gregg up!

Nothing beats looking out of the window....as a passenger......and seeing the runway looming ahead.
