AVI-8-Hawker Hurricane ‘Bulman’ Aviator Watch un-boxed and reviewed

Hello, my name is Ben Lovegrove and in this video I’m going to un-box and review the Hawker Hurricane watch, Bulman edition, from AVI-8 watches.

This is a very affordable and stylish timepiece which, at just £165, would be suitable as a gift for any aviator or aviation enthusiast.

The watch arrived in this presentation box and as you can see, it has an authentic look and feel about it, with military style colours and and the unmistakable RAF roundel.

The dial has ‘Hawker Hurricane’ written in the six o’clock position and the look and feel of the face is pleasant and reminiscent of khaki coloured military equipment.

The strap and the overall look of the watch is one of strength. The leather strap is thick and the stitching is large and sturdy.

The AVI-8’s description perfectly describes the watch face, dials, and hands.

“Arabic and baton shaped hour markers frame the watch perfectly with cutaway detailing with a luminous under dial giving clarity and legibility in all lighting conditions. Classically shaped arrow or “Fleiger” style hands are suitably lumed, precisely proportioned and balanced on the watch. The strong bold lines belie a subtlety and layering of the dial which includes a finely distressed layer of dial work marries well with the vintage military inspired aesthetics of the watch.”

This Bulman edition watch commemorates George Bulman who flew for the Royal Flying Corps (which later became the Royal Air Force), serving in No’s 46 &  3 Squadrons RFC.

Bulman was awarded the Military Cross and the Air Force Cross for his bravery and service to the country during World War I.

After the war Bulman continued flying and later became a test pilot for the Hawker Aircraft Company and flew many prototype aircraft, including the Hawker Hurricane.

This watch pays tribute to the engineers, test pilots, and designers of the aircraft that were so crucial to the defense of Great Britain during World War II.

I think anyone receiving this as a gift or buying it for themselves would be very satisfied with the quality, style, and the way in which it pays tributes to the pioneers of aviation, both on the ground and in the air. To buy a Hawker Hurricane watch for yourself or for someone else follow the link below which will take you to the AVI-8 website where you can also view many other aviator watches of similar style and quality.

Vulcan XM655 Maintenance & Preservation Society Wellesbourne Airfield

In this video I introduce you to the XM655 Maintenance and Preservation Society based at Wellesbourne Mountford Airfield, near Coventry, Warwickshire, in England.

Like so many other people I was captivated by the sight and sound of a Vulcan at air shows during the past three decades.

Seeing a Vulcan fly and hearing that distinctive howl leaves an impression that cannot be forgotten.

Avro Vulcan XM655 was third from last of the Vulcan bombers produced for the Royal Air Force, being delivered in late 1964, and was part of the UK’s nuclear deterrent force throughout the 1960s and 1970s.

It is now owned by Wellesbourne Airfield and is looked after by the XM655 Maintenance and Preservation Society, a volunteer organisation of Vulcan enthusiasts.

XM655 is one of the few Vulcans remaining in ground running condition, the only one with the most powerful of the engine variants (Bristol Olympus 301s) and the society aims to keep her running for as long as possible.

The aircraft systems, which are powered up and exercised regularly, are available for demonstration to booked parties of visitors.

Engine ground runs are carried out several times every year, and a ‘Fast Taxi’ event is carried out most summers to show off the aircraft and raise funds to support its preservation.

XM655 Maintenance and Preservation Society is a small team of skilled and dedicated volunteers, many of whom are ex-RAF, (some even ex-V-Force personnel and one of whom actually worked on XM655 in service), who give up their Saturdays to preserving XM655.

XM655 is an Avro Vulcan B Mk2, and the youngest Vulcan in existence.

Delivered to 9 squadron at RAF Cottesmore in November 1964, she transferred to the Waddington Wing in January 1968.

She then served with 101 and 44 squadrons, and was with 50 squadron when she was put up for disposal in late 1983.
