Vulcan Bomber to Perform at English Air Show

May 21, 2013 No Comments by

The last remaining Avro Vulcan V bomber will be taking to the skies at the annual Weston-super-Mare Air Day on England’s Bristol Channel coast this summer. The iconic aircraft, used by the Royal Air Force between 1956 and 1984 and known as XH558, will take to the skies above the resort on June 22.

The aircraft was last used operationally on the famous Black Buck raid on Stanley Airfield during the Falklands conflict in 1982, shortly before it retired from service. The Vulcan joins an expanding line-up of aviation stars including the bill-topping RAF Red Arrows display team, the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and the 1930s biplane the Dancing Tiger Moth.

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
