The Avro Vulcan returned to Farnborough more than a half a century after its show debut in 1952. XH558, which has returned to the display circuit after a 15-year, £6 million ($12 million) restoration, flew a "gentle display as we are limited to 1.55g and we also don't want to over-stretch the engines", says Vulcan To The Sky Trust (VTST) operations manager and former Vulcan pilot Mike Pollitt. The future for the world's only airworthy "tin triangle" is funding-dependent, as VTST is searching for a large commercial sponsor to help with the annual operating costs, which exceed £1 million.
