The Finningley Collection



A range of quality Merchandise and Giftware honouring the link between XH558 and her home at Doncaster Sheffield Airport - previously RAF Finningley.

Today, the majority of the site has been transformed into a modern international airport, but from 1915 to 1996 it was an operational station of significant importance to our nation’s defences. 

At the end of the 1950’s work was carried out to the base for it to operate as a V-bomber station. The airfield became known as the home of the V-bomber after Avro Vulcans, Handley Page Victors and Vickers Valiants had all been stationed at the base. XH558 operated on this site between 1961 and early 1968. 

When she landed for the final time on the long ex-military runway, former RAF Finningley became her final operational base and the focus of the many exciting developments that will follow.

'The Finningley Collection' is in honour of the men and women who served at the RAF station that is XH558’s home.
