Vulcan B1 Crew

Postby Rod Holmes » Wed Apr 10, 2013 6:15 pm

All,

Do you, or do any of your family and friends know any Vulcan B1 Pilots, Air Crew or Ground Crew?

We are trying to locate members of this exclusive V Force team mainly based at Waddington and Scampton pre 1961 on behalf of one of our many supporters.

If you can be of assistance please either post here or DM me on the @VForceHQ or @ROD558 twitterfeeds

Many thanks

Rod

Thanks Rod - I hope you don't mind me adding this....

To be precise, the question raised was this:

"Does anyone know of any pilots of the B1 (not B2) Vulcan, that are still alive today? (Anywhere)"

There probably aren't many. I know of one and he is 87 years old and he is trying to see if there's anyone else about! ;)

I am pursuing the obvious official channels...not had much luck yet.

Thanks folks :)

Hi Rod

I don't know if this will help in your search for any Vulcan B1 aircrew or not, my father had this photograph in his collection
he thinks it was taken in 1961 at Waddington?

The following link is to my flickr page where the original has been scanned (names of crew included) and the other two are cleaned up pictures.

I hope this may be of some help

Best Reagrds
