Weather was raining on and off all morning, just after we moved her to the other side of the runway the heavens opened. As if by magic blue sky as she lines up for takeoff.

Aaawwww thats a shame, lucky I work on petrol, she flew over the car wash and I just happened to be looking in that direction. I knew she'd taken off and was keeping my eyes peeled, just happened to be on the phone to manager and serving a customer as she flew by. My comment was OMG the Vulcan!!!!
