Black Buck 1 35th Anniversary 30th April

Black Buck 1 Veterans- on parade
Anniversary run complete

The weather was perfect, the crowd was great and we all had a good time.  Over 140 enthusiasts and Black Buck veterans attended the event at the Whittle Building, Cold War Jets Museum.  Flypast magazine organised an excellent photo shoot catering for all photographers in front of the aircraft- we even had re-enactors complete in an immersion suit.

The run was trouble free although an unfavourable cross wind meant the run was towards the thresh hold.  The boys coped with some initial computer problems but delivered the presentation and after an excellent buffet lunch, we hope our old and new friends departed happy with their experience.  We have added a few more pennies to keep Tina on the road, so thanks to you all.  I will add a gallery of the day shortly.
