Vulcan over Carnforth

Well what I treat I got last night. Came out of the Chinese at 7.30 to hear an aircraft overhead. Looked up and there was the Vulcan at about 3000ft heading West over the coast. Whilst my wife and daughter were bawling at me to open the car I was mesmerized.

Fantastic sight. Would it have been going to Warton?

Did a wonderful display over Douglas Bay at 8pm; presumably heading to us when you saw it. Left heading towards Carlisle, but dunno where it came from, or went to.

Vulcan is based in DSA at the moment so it routed to and from there.
