The Vulcan was awesome;) I used to see that thing at the Dayton Airshow in Ohio. If any airplane can rattle fillings out of teeth, the Vulcan is it. The last time I saw a Vulcan was ~1982 and shortly after the same bomber crashed at an airshow in Chicago:( I still remember hearing about the Black Buck raids during the Falklands! But the last great fighter was the F-8 Crusader..."When you're out of F-8's...you're out of Fighters" and "Last of the Gunfighters"
