    I was about to post the same but saw your post. Very cool I must say, but I have a question: Since the planes do barrel rolls or vertical climbs, how does the lubrication works in such a scenario? wouldn't it suffer from oil starvation if it pulls a lot of Gs in a hard climb?

    Perhaps some form of swirl pot? :Unknown:

    However I'm going to miss the Vulcan, by far my favourite war bird. I was at bruntingthorpe in 09' when the Victor took off by "mistake".

    That is cooooool !!

    They probably convert to a dry sump system whereby oil is pumped in from a oil reservoir which is separate from the engine.
