Any of you ex Waddo types remember the 101 sqn Vulcan XM600 crashing at Spilsby in Lincolnshire, 1977. I am glad to say that all the crew got out,but there were a lot of stories going around that one of the rear crew got "hung up" on his "elephant trunk" and had to be helped by the other two rear crewmen,also that one of the crew just missed some power cables on his way down,how true these stories are i don’t know but one thing i do remember is all the safety equipment docs being gatherd up and taken away for inspection, all o.k glad to say.
Also the farmer who’s field the aircraft crashed into got quite a "good payout",i wonder if he ever found one of the engines,oh and lots of time spent walking through muddy fields looking for bits of Vulcan can some times be fun,but only if you are a bit crazy,but then if you can’t take a joke you should not have joined.
