The Blades Aerobatic Team in formation with the Avro Vulcan


The Blades flies in formation with the Vulcan XH558 in a flypast over Sywell Aerodrome, Northamptonshire on 18 September.

The Vulcan to the sky trust chief executive Dr Robert Pleming said: “By returning the Vulcan XH558 to flight after years of painstaking restoration, negotiation and fundraising, we have already achieved what was widely considered to be impossible and we have proved that we can fly and operate XH558 successfully. For this amazing project to falter due yto lack of funding would be agonising for all the team and our supporters.”
