A Vulcan Bomber narrowly avoided what could have been a disaster yesterday (Sep 16), when it overshot a runway at Wellesbourne Mountford Airfield in Warwickshire (United Kingdom) and stopped just short of a busy public road with cars driving by. ( 기타...

Bond, James Bond is not happy. Seriously, glad the bird will be OK.
Yes, as a 12 year old, I absolutely fell in love with the Vulcan as I watched Thunderbolt (about a dozen times)!
You mean Thunderball?
I guess a plowed field works as well as EMAS, a good thing!
I was stationed at RAF Mildenhall in the mid-70's and got to see the occasional Vulcan shoot approaches once in a while. It always looked a little strange but cool.
I was expecting a much worse outcome based on the title... Glad the aircraft will be able to fly another day
Since it isn't airworthy now - and was not - we can hope that it might fly again someday.
It will not, nor will other - airworthy - Vulcans as the manufacturer withdrew support.
no it won't and never will.

Was on a Vulcan base... they were amazing...
Overshoots runway isn't accurate when he was only taxiing, a bit fast maybe but he wasn't landing so as to overshoot it. Slides off the end of runway more appropriately. Winding up the engines to that extent is a prelude to actually getting that beautiful bird in the air. Congrats to all!
It had reheat but no thrust reversers. Should'a been the other way around.
"The incident was reportedly caused by a malfunction, according to the caretakers of the retired Royal Air Force (RAF) plane". Caused by a malfunction? No ()*() Batman. I thought they may have done it just to show off. Yes I know additional info is provided later in the article.
I thought they were grounded for museums. I'm glad got another one up and flying. If you get a chance to see one during a flight display. It's amazing.
It was only doing a taxi test to keep the engines in working order, it's not airworthy.
LOL, I should have known. I was beginning to wonder who had an infinite amount of money to get one flying again.
stupid idea.
What is stupid idea?
