Now this is Art!

Not the picture obviously, but the beautiful piece of engineering soaring over Birmingham airport in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the great plane. It was a beautiful sight, which unfortunately only lasted a matter of seconds, but I did manage to grab a few snaps, and it’s probably the first and last time I’ll see one fly – the costs of keeping this beauty airworthy are prohibitive, and if things continue as they are, it’ll run out of funding next year, and that will be that.

It’ll be a terrible shame if it doesn’t fly again :(
