A former RAF Vulcan jet 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 fighter jet he once flew in.
