    Sorry....just saw your message
    No,not the Avro 707...its Avro Vulcan B1 XA890 at Farnborough Sept 1955.
    It was the 2nd production B1 with the original wing,and after much testing was scrapped in 1971.After this picture was taken the pilot,Roly Falk,barrel rolled it....honest.....I've seen the video.!!

    is it? my sence of perspective must be messed up i thought the people were far in the distance and the aircraft was up close :lol: yes i too am a BIG fan of the Vulcan (among other Avro Bombers) and yes much is made of the handeling abilities of the Vulcan as she was very manouverable and strong, much like the Lancaster, powerful too, did you know she could take off on two engines and fly on just one? that's why she had all the extra power to go balistic after take offs for a short period of time...........

    Its easier to see in a bigger picture.....I will see if I can find it and post it.
    Living in Lincolnshire (Bomber county) next to Scampton,Finningley Waddington and Coningsby,I have seen Vulcans and climbed all over them many times.
    p.s. managed to get into the Battle of Britain Lanc a few weeks ago which was lifelong ambition......respect to all who flew them
    Cheers

    Welcome aboard. Nice! I always had a little trouble knocking out a good quality barrel roll, until my last couple aerobatic flights... it's one of the trickier aerobatic maneuvers I thought!

    Hello. I am not a pilot, and know very little about planes beside for I what I read as a history ethusiast. I know very little, but look foward to learning more from you members. I apologise in advance for my future lack of contribution and possibly many stupid questions/posts. :cry:
