Sat dozing by my pond this summer having tried & failed to capture a dragonfly with my old FZ30 when the peace was shattered by the noise of this Avro Vulcan flying overhead with its escort planes, I worked out later they were flying from a display at Welshpool to a display at Cosford & happened to fly over our house, Strange thing was they turned on the smoke trails for a few seconds just as I tried to capture a few shots with the fz30?
