set to make a spectacular return to the Southport Airshow
VISITORS to the
Southport Airshow on Sunday, 9 September 2012, should expect to
experience one of the most powerful and dramatic sights in
British aviation; a display by XH558 the World's last flying
Vulcan. Subject to the usual caveats of weather and
serviceability, this iconic and much loved aircraft is making a
much awaited return to the Show. As the 'Vulcan Effect'
takes hold of one of the premier resorts in the North West, it's
a great opportunity for the people of Southport and the
surrounding area, to give her a very special welcome.
She is expected to attract huge crowds and steal the show with
the famous howl of her four Olympus jet engines, her startling
maneuverability and the sight of her magnificent delta wings
climbing almost vertically into the sky. It is particularly
fitting that the Vulcan is making a return to the Show in a year
when she is celebrating three highly significant anniversaries;
the Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen, the 60th Anniversary of
the first ever flight by a Vulcan and the 30th Anniversary of
The Falklands Conflict, in which, of course Vulcans played a
significant part in helping to liberate the Islands.
Dr Robert Pleming, Vulcan to the Sky Trust (VTST) Chief
Executive said:- "I am absolutely delighted that all of
our hard work over the last few months has enabled XH558 to make
a hugely welcome return to the Airshow circuit during the
Summer, and, most importantly, allowed us to make a very special
appearance in front of Her Majesty The Queen at Sunderland. This
flight was the highlight of our Diamond Jubilee tribute to Her
Majesty and indeed every flight we make during this special year
will be dedicated to celebrating the Diamond Jubilee of Her
Majesty Queen Elizabeth. This is a great opportunity to say a
big 'Thank You' to all of our loyal supporters who have stayed
with us through thick and thin. We are incredibly grateful for
the Vulcan to be appearing once again in the beautiful resort of
Southport. Giving people, particularly those who may not have
seen her before, the chance to see this iconic aircraft, in such
a special year for us all."
