Avro Vulcan – See it in 2013, or miss out.

The Avro Vulcan – such an iconic aircraft, and a wonderful sight, which we will soon lose from our skies.

The Vulcan to the sky trust posted a press release which has aviation fans across the globe planning trips to UK air shows in 2013, to catch the last ever glimpse of this incredible bird soaring majestically across our skies.

The trust made the decision to end the aircraft’s flying career due the various parts reaching the end of their certified life, some highly critical parts which can’t simply be bought or sourced elsewhere – they have produced a pdf document to explain.

Bear in mind, the 2013 season still may not happen – the trust still need to raise £400k to run the aircraft, so if you do want to see the plane in 2013 look for dates and also consider donating to the cause, on the Vulcan to the Skies website.
