    Default Avro Vulcan XH558 - Last Chance To See It For Many Of Us.

    Hi guys,

    U.K. members might be interested to know that the last national tour of Avro Vulcan XH558 will take place this weekend on the 10th (the North) and the 11th (the South) over a course of around 3 1/2 hours each. Here's the planned Northern route for Saturday the 10th.

    And the Southern route on Sunday the 11th.

    You can zoom in on both maps just like Google street view.

    These may be subject to change, but here's the main website complete with downloadable Apps so that real keeno's can follow it in real time and any further news from now on can be found. Timings and any changes to the planned schedule will be available here as of tomorrow Friday the 9th of October.

    There will be a couple of more specific flights after this, but for most of us this will be the last chance to see the 'Tin Triangle' in it's natural element.

    Hopefully I'll catch it Saturday as it's most southern point will be just down the road from me at RAF Cosford which will be used as a navigational bearing point if things go as usual.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Such a shame it cant be kept in the air

    I think you may get two bites of the cherry Nick, probably being able to see it on both days!
