The Avro Vulcan: an apology

When I wrote on 18 August 2006 that “I’ve got my own doubts about how much money can be justified to keep large jets flying” I may have inadvertently given the impression that I had doubts about how much money could be justified to keep large jets flying.

Having spent a gloriously unproductive ten minutes at Farnborough this afternoon watching an Avro Vulcan fly (see pic below) I would like to assure readers that I think the amount of money appropriate for keeping Vulcans flying is, basically, whatever it takes.

I apologise for any confusion that may have been caused. Readers are encouraged to attend the Farnborough public days this weekend for further clarification.

One Response to The Avro Vulcan: an apology

    What a beautiful aircraft to watch…. It is sad that such aircraft have to die at some time. I remember a stingray when ever I see the Vulcan. Deadly yet docile in appearance.
    Please do not degrade this lovely V bomber.
