Shown here are a
number of photographs of various Vulcans which I have been able to
obtain via the internet and various friends etc. I have tried to
credit the photographer where possible, but have found this
difficult in some circumstances. If you own the copyright of any
image here please e-mail me so that I can either credit your work,
or remove it from my site if you so wish.

The above three images
were taken during the Summer 2002, shortly before XL426 awoke to
perform a fast taxi run.
Here we see XL426
during the taxi run. The sound of Olympus engines being brought up
to take off speed is, unfortunately, over far too quickly. The air
brakes emerge and the brake chute is deployed. Sadly, XL426 is not
permitted to take to the air on this occasion.

undercover) copyright G. Bartlett.
If you wish to use them please contact me. I
rarely say no.
