The story started with the world’s most ambitious and complex technical restoration project, an award-winning aspiration to return one of the world’s most iconic aircraft to the skies, Vulcan XH558. Now, after meeting all the objectives, delighting more than two million people every year and inspiring new generations of young people, Vulcan to the Sky Trust is entering an exciting new phase of the narrative.
XH558 landed for the last time on 28th October 2015, at the end of a spectacular Farewell to Flight season and eight years after that remarkable return to the skies. It will become the centrepiece of a new type of education initiative. The exciting Etna project will build on XH558’s inspirational qualities to encourage the development of the technical and aviation industry skills that Britain so badly needs, continuing XH558’s success as an icon of British achievement.
XH558 will be cared for at an adjacent heritage centre from where she will continue to delight visitors of all ages as she does today, with the added excitement of regular fast taxi runs.
