I think the Lincolnshire echo said fly past at 13:30, so around the 1pm mark maybe???

"No plans to fly down the Mall" ..just received via VTTS E Mail

I knew it wasn't going to happen but imagine if it did..Commentator on the beeb says and

"As part of the flypast you can now see the amazing site of the Vulcan which of course flew in the Falklands but who's design dates back to 50's blah, blah, blah...Maintained entirely by a charity and volunteers however it is threatened with grounding unless xx found to keep it flying

...Millions watching


...Funding crisis over

Simple eh?

An no, I haven't booked '558. Seing as the Hitchin area (inc. our venue) sits under the Luton airport stack zone, can't see her slipping through unnoticed!

I will remember my camera ;). Wondering whether to stay at home in Pinchbeck (about 2 miles from Spalding) and hope they come over my house and pick up the A16 route to Waterbeach, or to go into Spalding and stand on the footbridge over the railway, in case they go straight over the centre of the town. I know that when the flypast practice is done for the Queens birthday, they head back to Waddington/Coningsby straight down my garden and bear right after passing over the house.
