Event - Last Vulcan Flight of the Year times (Finningley)

Vulcan to the Sky are happy to report all 558 tickets for the event in the viewing gallery at Robin Hood Airport sold out just after lunchtime today.

An exciting day is certainly in prospect and we hope for good serviceability of XH558 and some luck with the weather.

Make sure you watch their Twitter feed and Facebook pages for all the latest news as it happens.

However, this flight comes at a very awkward time for the Trust with our cash reserves almost depleted. The fuel bill alone will be nearly £10,000.

It is the sight of XH558 by many thousands of people over the day that we hope will help them. Not only immediately, but as they strive to reach our funding targets for next year. With the assistance from their supporter's club, they have people on the ground distributing leaflets at several locations on Sunday.

Here is where you might catch a glimpse of XH558:
