Vulcan XH558, Rutland Water Flypast


Vulcan XH558 making its penultimate flypast tour at Rutland Water before retirement.
100's of people gathered to watch this 2 minute (!)flypast, most of which were disappointed because it's programmed turn was not made over the water but behind the cover of some near-by trees. Most frustrating!
