Re: The Last Chance

Sad news but not unexpected, this season will be the Vulcans last, a few upcoming dates here - Vulcan XH558 - Weekly Newsletter hopefully more will be added.
I`ve also read somewhere, but can`t find it right now that it will do a fly around the country.

I will make sure that I see it somewhere. Never served on a Vulcan Sqdn but have been there when there was a scramble - the noise was incredible.
Off to London tomorrow and the lad is taking me to the IWM - looking forward to that as it was in the '70s when I was last there.

Re: The Last Chance

Found the info on the fly around the country - Vulcan To The Sky - Fourth Anniversary

Copied from another forum -
"Planned routes for tour;

Saturday 27th June

Newark
East Midlands
Cosford
Woodford
Carlisle
East Fortune
Sunderland
Elvington
Doncaster return


Sunday 28th June

Bruntingthorpe
Coventry
Wellesbourne
Hendon
Duxford
Southend
Norwich
Marham
Waddington
Doncaster return"


Woodford isn`t far from here so might see it fly overhead on its way to Carlisle.

The straight forward route would take it pretty close to Hyndburn/Blackburn. However, that would also take it pretty close to M/C Airport local control so there would probably be a diversion around that. I will make some enquiries and see if I can get some detail on the planned route.

Re: The Last Chance

Sorry there is some sort of screw up with the web site for the BBMF tour schedule

Thanks G, I was told that the full programme was available on the other site so it was possible to plan ahead somewhat.

Many thanks for publishing the above link and thereby reminding me about the "last chance". Got off my backside and saw the Vulcan (and the BBMF) at Welshpool today. Very impressive display by the Vulcan and surprisingly long. Last time I saw a Vulcan flying was back in 195x at an Air Show where in the morning it was parked on the ground and you could walk round it (but not too close!) and in the afternoon it simply took-off and flew away - no display as such.

If anyone is thinking of going somewhere to see it stop thinking and just go, you will not be disappointed.

Re: The Last Chance

Possibly the direct route from Carlisle to M/C Airport approach. I think Barton is now known as City Airport - looks as though it could even be a grass strip.
