Help the Vulcan

This is a picture that I took in 2011 of the last operational Vulcan bomber:

The Vulcan  is supported by a charity called ‘Vulcan to the Sky’. They are a group of volunteers that maintain the aircraft in the winter and fly it at air shows and special events in the summer (like the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee). It is a wonderful aircraft to see in flight, beautifully graceful with it’s big V wing and a real icon of British military aviation. If you have never seen this aircraft flying then I’d encourage you to try and see it.

Unfortunately, the costs to keep such a aircraft running are pretty high and for safety reasons it needs to undergo comprehensive maintenance over the winter so it can be flown during the summer. The project is entirely funded by donations and needs significant funds to keep the aircraft airworthy. I’m a supporter of their work, having been lucky enough to see it flying last year. It would be such a shame to see the Vulcan grounded next summer from lack of funds and to deprive others a chance to see this fantastic aircraft in flight. To find out more and maybe even offer them some support please visit http://vulcantothesky.org.
