Red Arrows Farewell to Vulcan
The Red Arrows have flown with the Vulcan bomber for the final time in a show of great British aviation icons.
Jets from the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team performed a flypast with the mighty Cold War aircraft at the Southport Air Show this afternoon (Saturday, September 19th, 2015).
Thousands of people cheered and waved as the Red Arrows' nine distinctive British-built Hawk aircraft made a V-shape in front of the Vulcan.
