Now, this is how it’s done. When you want a flyby video that’s low and loud, setting up by the runway on approach is the way to go. This is exactly what these folks did.
WARNING: If you’re wearing headphones, turn your volume down a bit. The buzz sounds ok on speakers, but it might blow your eardrums on headphones.Advertisement
We’re not exactly sure where this took place, but we’re assuming it’s somewhere in the United Kingdom as we can hear some of these blokes talking for a bit after the Vulcan buzzed over them. Where ever it might have taken place though, it was one crazy flyby.
That scream at the end (although we’re sure it was also the microphone not being able to handle the sound) is attributed to the Vulcan’s four Bristol Olympus engines which produce over 20,000 lbs. of thrust. They help this bomber reach speeds of up to 560 miles per hour and for a massive plane that’s over 80,000 lbs., that’s not bad.
