BBC's Look East excelled themselves last night, even by their standards!

They did a feature about the Vulcan's appearance at Duxford about it being a 4 engined cold war bomber and promptly showed footage of B.17 Sally B in flight but none of the Vulcan, even my wife pointed out that it wasn't a Vulcan before I had the chance to demonstrate my anorakism :)
