No, but I did see on the App that it crewed in and took off then no more updates which is odd. It's also not registering on their tracking map and nothing on the website about a planned flight today. All very secretive.....

I've just checked the tracking on the iPhone app, and it's been circling around Northampton, in particular Sywell for the past hour or so.

I've just checked the Sywell Aerodrome site and noticed the the Blades aerobatic team have a corporate day today according to the NOTAM's on the site, so maybe they've arranged a sneaky display, as I've also noticed the circling turning points around Sywell have actually been over the airfield.

She has just flown over Broughton, 6 or 7 miles north east of Sywell, still circling, perhaps doing some air to air with the Blades? Not my very favourite aircraft but quite emotional to think that will be the last time I see her in the air.

I remember raffle tickets were sold earlier in the year and one of the prizes was a formation flight with the Vulcan - the prize winners flying in the front of the Blades Extras - I bet thats whats going on Lucky for some - you gotta be in it to win it!
