I'm sorry, but, all this "Returning Home" stuff in nonsense!

558's home is, was and always will be, Bruntingthorpe.









That said, the write up is very good! ;)
NB; Any negative comments I post about the Vulcan are posted SOLELY to wind Gregg up!

Sorry I must disagree XH558's home was and always will be Waddington in Bomber County

Vulcan's AS A WHOLE, belong in Lincolnshire.

558, would be in bits in a scrapyard by now if it wasn't for the volunteers at Bruntingthorpe keeping her alive for so long,


SHE BELONGS AT BRUNTINGTHORPE, END OF!

The lady has come to the Peoples Republic of South Yorkshire. Her needs will be catered for, she will be treated with love and respect. Was her last show at Finningley.

I thought Finningley was her second to last show (I was there as well) but am probably wrong. I see everyone's point here. I agree with Waddington & Finningley as her spiritual (real) home but also see where Gaz etc are coming from. Having said that. I really couldn't care less as long as, wherever she is now WORKS and extends her ability to stay in the air.

Thanks MrTim. That brings back memories of watching Vulcans and Victors flying overhead when I was but a lad in Pontefract. 558 was probably one of them.

When we travel around the country on our boat, we usually watch the local BBC news for where-ever we are at the time, and we have nicknames for several of the local TV "personalities.

That's Slapper Ackroyd you're talking about. :))
