Vulcan to the Sky

August 13, 2014 8:38 am

Avro Vulcan XH558 returned to flight on 18th October 2007 following an award winning restoration programme. As the last airworthy Vulcan, she returned triumphantly to the air display circuit in 2008 and has been a significant crowd puller at every event she attends!

Dr Robert Pleming, Chief Executive of the Vulcan to the Sky Trust, extended a warm welcome to Dr Rona Mackenzie, inviting her to visit the Vulcan in her home at the Robin Hood Airport. Michael Lemon, retired Aircraft Engineer, joined Rona on the trip and a number of hours were spent learning about the history of the Vulcan and her role in inspiring the next generation of engineers, scientists, designers and aviators…something close to our hearts! Rona was fortunate to be able to climb into the cockpit to experience the pilot’s view and time was spent discussing how the UTC can collaborate with XH558 to develop the experiences and understanding of our students.

Many thanks to Dr Pleming for a wonderful morning – we look forward to welcoming you to Lincoln UTC.
