Although I never worked on the Vulcan, I was lucky enough to have known many of the maintenance team and used to organise trips up to see it while it spent a winter in one of the hangars I used to work out of at RAF Lyneham a few years back. I was always taken aback at the effect it had on the people I took there!

Edit:

And for those who may have only heard the rumour (about 25 seconds in).

My dad was a toolmaker at AVRO's in Chadderton where the airframe for XH558 was built, I still have an ashtray somewhere with a Vulcan stamped in it from one of the open days in the 1970's

Hi, Jim,

Is it too late to put my name down for this one?
Looks like I'm free on the 22nd August & this looks like a nice day out.

Thanks,

Simon.
Hi Simon,
no, as I mentioned, shouldn't be a problem.
Thanks for the post / reminder. I'm sure I wouldn't have forgotten, but double redundancy and all that.

I'll get you added
Jim

We may be able to have the cars parked up in front of the bomber and take some photographs too :cool:



The admission is £12.50 per adult, that may reduce to £10.50 if we get a group of 10 or more ( the only problem with that is they're not really taking group bookings at the moment! )
The plan is to be there for 10.00am and check out the planes / exhibits etc, have some fun, maybe a wee light lunch ( still to be sorted )

I'll try and fill this out in the coming days and weeks, but that's the gist of it.
