Catalytic said:I grew up 200 meters from the south western end of the runway of the factory that now manufactures the wings for Airbus, in the early eighties they would do a cracking airshow every summer. One of the abiding memories of my childhood is standing in the garden of my parents house and a Vulcan looming over me like a star destroyer in the opening credits of star wars, standing on it's tail directly above my house and giving a four barrelled olympus roar. Never seen one since. I'm too afraid to damage the memory.
The factory also hosted a mosquito for a while, that twin merlin sound used to make the older men in the housing estate cheer when it flew over.
Catalytic said:Chester, well actually "JUST" over the border in Broughton north wales.
My parents still live in that house and my dad still makes wings, well just about... vibration white finger ended his riveting career and he'll retire soon
