The World's lone flying example of the Avro Vulcan has touched down at Royal Air Force base Fairford in Gloucestershire to participate in this weekend's Royal International Air Tattoo.

Vulcan XH558 landed at Fairford after a repositioning flight from RNAS Yeovilton in Somerset, where it had a starring role at the Yeovilton Air Day show on 9 July.

It is due to fly on both public days at RIAT, on 16 and 17 July.

The iconic aircraft is operated by the Vulcan to The Sky Trust. Its crew this weekend includes Martin Withers as co-pilot, who took part in the Black Buck series of raids mounted during the 1982 Falklands War.
