The Vulcan bomber, a "military spec Concorde", was always one of my favourites at air shows, when they did a slow pass over the length of the runway, then turned away from the crowd and "opened her up". It wasn't just a noise, it was something guttural that made every fibre of your body vibrate.

Remember one of those at an air show at Southend Airport. The ground shook for me.

I do love the Vulcan.

The RAF used to fly their VC-10s into Aldergrove quite frequently and the approach for runway 07 was pretty much right over our town. The bassy rumble of the Rolls-Royce Conways on that one was a great sound.

Oh Nutek, please save us from James May and his fellow anoraks and post some funny pictures. Even ones of duck puppets would be better than this....
