The Vulcan isn’t flying yet, but there’s still hope

So, there’s still no news from the CAA regarding the flight status of XH558, however, the operating company have been running low on funds.  This has been due to extra test flights and other expenses.

It was getting so close that the irony of having an airworthy Vulcan but no money to fly her was very much on everyones mind.

However, where there’s hope there is sometimes an answer.  The answer to our lovely delta lady came in the shape of Eddie Forrester,  Managing Director of Aerobytes.

Mr Forrester, already a supporter of the Vulcan, has contributed an undisclosed sum, which will now see the Vulcan safe till the end of the display season.  By which time, a large sponsor will hopefully want to contribute to such a large crowd puller.

We all now have our fingers crossed that the CAA are able to reply before Waddington, so that the public, who have also contributed so much to the Vulcan’s survival, can see the lady perform again.
