It has just been announced by the Vulcan to the Sky Trust that 2015 will mark the final display season of the most iconic aircraft of the past 60 years. The delta-winged Vulan XH558 is the only flying example in the world and since being restored to flying condition in 2007 its thunderous, yet graceful display has wowed airshow visitors throughout the UK.
The Vulcan will be displaying at the Royal International Air Tattoo in Fulford in July. She will fly into the show on Thursday 16th July, be on static display on Friday 17th and then take part in the flying display on Saturday 18th and 19th July.
After her retirement from flying the Vulcan will be based in Doncaster where she will still be able to accelerate dramatically along the runway.
It has just been confirmed that one of the world's most iconic aircraft, the Vulcan, will be taking part in this year's Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford. Vulcan XH558 is the only flying example of this large military aircraft.
'Spirit of Great Britain' will fly into RAF Fairford on Friday 17th July for a special 'Pit Experience Day' which will give visitiors close access to the aircraft and the opportunity to meet members of the Vulcan to the Sky team.
The Vulcan will then perform flying displays on Saturday and Sunday. The Air Tattoo promises to be an outstanding spectacle of aviation with the theme 'Securing the Skies – Past, Present and Future'
