XH 558 Departing DSA

Had a nip to Donny to see the old girl depart for Abingdon. Quite a quick take off. She departed a tad after 16.00.

She did a practice display at Waddington routed Sleaford - Grantham and came back the same way
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.
