Xmas come early.....Now wheres me FS9 Vulcan.... :dance:

Tony
All that power, all that wing, and all that military equipment stripped out, no doubt. She certainly leapt into the air, didn't she.

I read a while back that they found wiring in the bomb bay specifically installed to launch some kind of weapon that she never carried ( depth charges ? Anti submarine torpedoes...something very un-Vulcanish, anyway ). All that came out too.

Which FS9 Vulcan have you got, Tony ? :)

Blimey I am so happy this has happened.
Pip Pip ! :)

And probably not much fuel either. :)

Soooo... has anybody worked out yet how many VC10 tankers it would take to get her - plus the UK's last remaining 1,000lb bomb - over the Iranian nuclear centrifuges?

Come on Tonks - you know you want to!
