2:10 The Vulcan - Bryn Lewis - It was a day on the runway that nobody would ever forget. The Grand Opening of Wellington International Airport in October 1959. A spectacular airshow was planned for the occasion, the jewel in the Crown of which was the presence of an Arvo Vulcan bomber plane, specially flown over by a team of RAF pilots from the UK.
The Vulcan roared off, as planned, and thrilled viewers in the skies above Wellington. But delight turned to dismay when the plane came down short of the runway. Bryn Lewis was onboard the Vulcan on that day in 1959.
