The last flying Avro Vulcan, XH558 has been booked in to make one final appearance for the year when Wootton Bassett receives the Royal title for its recent use of being the town which until recently has received the fallen from Iraq and Afghanistan after repatriation at RAF Lyneham.
XH558 should take off from Finningley (Robin Hood Airport) mid-afternoon on October 16th and the Vulcan to the Sky charity are marking the day with a special event to give fans a chance to see the aircraft by positioning it outside the airport terminal and having a Family Fun Day prior to flight. Tickets are available at £6 for adults and £3 for children.
This will be the last flight before the Vulcan goes for its winter maintenance programme. To book a ticket for the event contact Vulcan to the Sky at http://www.vulcantotheskystore.co.uk/category/558_s_Family_Day_Event___Sun_16th_Oct,i.html
