    The pilot equivalent of giving me a Bugatti Veyron for 30mins and saying "Don't go over 30mph"

    Never

    gonna

    happen.

    I have a photo of Vulcan pretty much inverted but not as clear as that - was a fair way away! Here are some of the favourite ones 20150719-IMG_5588.jpg 20150719-IMG_5618.jpg 20150719-IMG_5623.jpg 20150719-IMG_5671.jpg 20150719-IMG_5719.jpg 20150719-IMG_5791.jpg 20150719-IMG_5797.jpg 20150719-IMG_5819.jpg 20150719-IMG_5821.jpg 20150719-IMG_5826.jpg 20150719-IMG_5828.jpg that I took - first proper outing with a Canon L-Class lens - the 70-300mm one.

    Inverted! Well - I asked the pilots and they said it was 120 degrees

    I cant get my protractor out but that looks a touch more than 120degrees

    Indeed it does! I think they told me the "official" version of the truth...

    to be fair, it probably is 120 degrees. but in our world, its upside down!

    Interestingly enough, the pilot told me that they must always maintain positive g when flying Vulcan. Don't know why. Something to do with the airframe?

    I've only ever once briefly seen one of these. And in a word - BEAST, big, nasty hairy arsed beast. Very very impressive and scary at the same time.

    Epic piece of kit.

    Oh and the size - did I mention the size!

    And the noise!

    Kinda makes sense, if its not designed to go upside down/neg G

    That would explain the way they always turn and roll out of a vertical climb I guess. Although if I were being chased by a missile i'd be pulling eleven different kinds of G trying to GTFO of the way!
