She fly’s – The Vulcan is airworthy and returns to the skies

Firstly, congratualtions to the guys at Bruntingthorpe. The Vulcan has received its CAA permit to fly and is already in the air and flying to Waddington in preparation for this weekends airshow.

Everyone must be so happy with the news. Many of us had our fingers crossed and were suspicious when the web cams showed the Vulcan out of the hanger and the announcement of a BBC transmission from the airbase really got the old thought juices flowing.

I can’t wait to see her fly in the flesh, unfortunately with the announcement so close to the airshow, I will have to miss Waddington, but I am sure there will be at least two shows in the near future I will attend.  The shame is that the Vulcan will probably only form part of the static show, this in itself is a huge boost, with the ultimate goal, seeing her soar in front of her adoring public.  I am also sure, that the true die hard fans, will try to find out when she is due to fly out so they can watch and feel the growl as she powers up for takeoff.

Once again Congratulations to all involved, including the public who gave their own money and to the Lottery Commission who recognised an important cultural icon to help preserve.

Why not visit the Vulcan website, read more about the plane and donate if you can.
