Earthenware mug, with Avro Vulcan Platinum Jubilee printed on both sides.

Sharing the momentous anniversary year with Her Majesty the Queen, this year is the Platinum Jubilee of the Avro Vulcan. 70 years ago, on Saturday 30 August 1952, history was made as Avro Type 698, VX770, took to the sky for the first time. It was the prototype for the Avro Vulcan and the birth of this iconic aircraft.

Known as Avro Type 698 at the time of the first flight, the aircraft was named Vulcan days later at the Farnborough Airshow.
