And a vintage Spitfire aircraft swooped underneath to make sure it was safe to land.

After wowing the 120,000-strong crowd at the Low Green — the Vulcan couldn’t touch down because the nose wheel got stuck.

Luckily the crew managed to push it in place manually — otherwise the front of the aircraft could have smashed into the ground.

As the Vulcan veered around the sky before touching down — the much loved World War II Spitfire flew below to double check all was in order for landing.

Fire engines were on hand at the runway in case the bomber had a shaky landing.

A display in Leicestershire on Sunday was cancelled so the jet could get a ‘thorough inspection.’
