Vulcan take off

The last airworthy Vulcan bomber has finally taken off from it's base at Doncaster's Robin Hood airport to mark 30 years since the iconic aircraft was used to vital effect in the Falklands War. Poor weather conditions meant a delay of more than four hours.

It's also 60 years since the Vulcan's first ever flight - and the charity which runs the aircraft, says it hopes it will be used as part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations
