Vulcan XH558

I have written before about Vulcan XH558 and the Vulcan to the Sky Trust and was really pleased when I read that the old girl has been test flying over the last week and with great success.

Then I spotted this piece on the BBC, it's entitled "Symbol of destruction takes to the air" and is quite a mean-spirited article including the line "The debate over whether a symbol of destruction should be restored will continue".

The BBC proud to hate anything British. Thank heavens they have so little knowledge of history that they don't know about the Vulcan's mission to bomb the runway at Port Stanley airport during the mission to retake the Falklands. Do read the book Vulcan 607 for the fascinating story of this mission.
