Vulcan Displays at Southport

The restored vulcan XH558 is certainly making the most of it’s restoration, as she left RAF Brize Norton Sunday 7 September, to display at Southport.

Having been grounded the day before due to bad weather, along with the wing walkers, the Vulcan was a sight for sore eyes.

Visitors were treated to a display from the mighty delta winged aircraft as she flew past the beach.

It was estimated that around 55 – 60 thousand airplanes enthusiats and fans flocked to the Southport sea front to watch the annual aitrshow

The Vulcan performed in the afternoon, to everyones delight as some previous airshows have been cancelled due to either weather or technical problems.

The mighty vulcan was not alone in the sky, Tornadoes and Eurofighter Typhoons, harrier jump jets and an AWAC 707, whilst the Blades and Red Atrrows performed aerobatic displays

There was also a demonstration of the role of the RAF, with a small display of troops attacking from the beach via Helicopter whilst fighters simulated bombing runs.
