Vulcan To Fly Over

Home » Newsroom » Vulcan To Fly Over

The world's last flying Vulcan bomber will make a farewell tour of the country this weekend. It should be visible from Chelford.

The distinctive delta-winged jet, an icon of the Cold War, will spend hours flying around the country on Saturday and Sunday before it is finally grounded forever later this month.

The Avro Vulcan XH558, manufactured at Woodford Aerodrome near Stockport in the 1960s, has been touring UK airshows and displays after a long restoration project, but this year will mark its final flights.
