Damn silly headline of the week

Nice to see that the Vulcan will be coming to this year’s Sunderland Air Show, which will be happening on Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 July. Less nice to see the silly BBC headline, and sillier article which refers to the delta-winged beauty being “used in the Cold War”, which sounds rather alarming. As far as I can recall, the only time Vulcans were used in anger was during the Falklands war…

But what’s altogether more disturbing is that both the BBC report and the actual Red Arrows display schedule suggest that we won’t be getting the usual highlight of the show.  :wah: :wah:
