Retired RAF Vulcan pilot 'flies' again in Shrewsbury

A former RAF Vulcan pilot returned to the cockpit - in a soapbox derby.

Ian Prior was invited to take the replica Vulcan for a spin at the Shrewsbury Wacky Races event.

Ian, from Ellesmere in Shropshire, had a 30-year RAF career, flying Vulcans from 1975 to 1982.

But he found the controls of the 2019 Vulcan more difficult to handle than the aircraft he once flew in.
