Inside XJ823 (Solway Aviation Museum)

Postby Nemo_uk » Sat Sep 08, 2012 2:50 pm

The following is a panorama I created of Vulcan XJ823 based at the Solway Aviation Museum near Carlisle. Looking good for 51. Clicking on the image will open the panorama in a new window, it requires Adobe Flash. You can zoom in & out using your mouse wheel or SHIFT to zoom in and CTRL to zoom out.

Looks like the only noticable thing missing is some insulation from the cockpit sides canopy etc

Excellent photograph.

Is the future of this aircraft secure bearing in mind the plans for the airport and its owner Stobbart Group?

Please dont think I know something because I dont!
