hi guys cheers for replys!
ive always noticed it from when my uncle used to own the kennels in adlington just across the road from the little chef and u can see it on the far side, i remember years ago we used to have a bbq on his lawn and watch the airshow and the planes used to come right over,one of the vulcans actually cracked one of his windows once but watching that beast fly over with the bomb doors open was immense!
i regulary go on bike rides up to macc and saw the giant model vulcan flying around woodford last year and the other day i saw 603 had been moved over the fields as u can see it from the main rd through adlington.
i remember the engines always being tested at that place could hear them across the fields most days and i was even lucky enough to see the antonov that landed there and the unfortunate spitfire crash.
such a shame that a piece of english heritage has gone, i dont know the politics of woodford but i heard the place had been destined to shut for years but surely the gov maybe could have put money into building a revolutionary aircraft or something abit like all the car factorys,we should have built better cars and striked less lol, who knows but a shame that a big housing estate will be built around there, no wonder all the houses are going up for sale in the area!
