Avro 698 Vulcan B2, G-VLCN / XH558 (cn SET12). Waddington (WTN / EGXW) - UK, July 6, 2008. After suffering an alternator problem during start-up, the Vulcan was fast-taxied down the wet Waddington runway.
It will not have escaped the attention of aviation enthusiasts in the UK that much loved Avro Vulcan XH558 ‘The Spirit of Great Britain’ is almost at the end of her flying display career and by the end of this month, the world’s only flying Vulcan will take to the air no more. Over the weekend of 10th and 11th October, the aircraft embarked on an ambitious ‘National Tour’, allowing as many people as possible to say goodbye to this much loved Cold War bomber.
