    Default XH558 just popped over my head :D

    The only flying Vulcan left decided to fly over my head today

    Mad scramble for the DSLR meant i could grab a couple of pics, (uploading them now) sadly the smallest lens i had was on the cam at the time so there not brilliant.

    I know one thing, she still makes ALOT of noise.
