Wings and Wheels

Yesterday we went over to a local Airfield for Wings and Wheels day. Wellesbourne Airfield is home to Vulcan Bomber XM655, which is not airworthy, but which was going to be doing a couple of taxi runs yesterday. Also there was a classic car show.

Bonus of the day...we ended up being given a spot in the Classic Car area.

There was another SLK there, and an SL. We were surprised at how much interest there was in our car. Handed out a few SLK World cards, and had a great time chatting about the car.

Couple of vids of XM655 below, two short and one longer.

Now for some footage of a REALLY rare Vulcan!

After the taxi runs, we were allowed to get up close to XM655

All in all a great day out, and certainly something we'll look to do next year!

"Think as I think," said a man,"Or you are abominably wicked; You are a toad."
And after I had thought about it, I said,
"I will, then, be a toad."(Thank you, Steven Crane)

Think outside the box!
