    Appears those taking the video of the Vulcan attempting to land somehow were directly in the glide path of the vulcan causing the pilot to go around. I would think they should be arrested and charged at least for the additional fuel required for the missed approach go around procedure.

    I wish they'd had the little video cameras they have now way back when...an F-4 taking off just over your head with afterburners roaring at night would have made a nice video.

    Those Brits. When they set their minds to it, they sure do design then field some gorgeous flying machines.

    It's a thrill you know. there are many areas where you can tand in glide paths and it is fine like St. Martins.

    The Vulcan pilot did not intend to land; I believe this was an example of a practice maneuver in which the plane approaches "as if" for a landing (also known as "touch and go"), and then resumes its flight. Apparently, ebickford dosen't know this is a routine for military aircraft. Pilots need to know how to do this in cases where landings aren't possible at the last minute. In any event, there's no way ANYONE, civilian or otherwise, would have been allowed to position themselves in a way that endangered the airplane/crew or themselves. Security is as tight at the field in the video as anywhere else in the world. ebickford needs to get out more.

    just a reply to Mycamp3; this is what is called a "Missed Approach" it is done as practice. The pilot is not preforming a "Touch and Go". and as for a waste of good footage... I believe most would find this very well worth the time and film. I would think that the person taking the footage could feel the ground effect air pressure as the Vulcan passed over. Lighten up...

    I'm sure the Vulcans have been around almost as long as our B-52s??
