Farnborough Airshow 08 – The Vulcan!

Farnborough Airshow 08 – The Vulcan!

The last couple of weeks we have been battling with the Farnborough Airshow traffic. Living close to Farnborough means that for 2 weeks every 2 years temporary lights and diversions appear around Farnborough and the surrounding areas. This makes it difficult to get to work, and very difficult if you want to go out on the weekend of the show, unless you are heading in the opposite direction!

The plus side of all of this, is that in the buildup week, we get the aircraft flying across the works multi-storey car park and so it is a great place to stand to see some of the aircraft. In some displays, you get the aircraft flying directly over your head down the centre of the car park, at what feels like just a few metres above you!

This week the Vulcan was flying, so we all wanted to see what path if would take. After its initial take-off and disappear it started its display. Being so high we could see it flying down the runway, then starting to turn, and turn towards us. It continued its turn and banked right above our heads providing a great underside shot, At one point it was actually too close for the lens.

Sadly the week leading up to the show wasn’t ideal weather so in some shots it looked really dull is it was still raining, but, I still get some interesting pictures of it!
