Vulcan XH558 Nosewheel Emergency and Spitfire Assistance

Here is a 10-minute video including radio transmissions with ATC and Avro Vulcan XH558 and a Spitfire flying chase. The Vulcan - the last flying example today - had a nosewheel malfunction and was not down and locked. Once the Spitfire pilot confirmed there was nothing blocking the nosewheel's travel, the Vulcan crew were able to climb and descend to lock the gear safely in place. A dramatic situation brought to a successful conclusion. Exciting footage posted via YouTube.
