British Airshows - the shows, the venues, the aircraft, the dates

Vulcan XH558  

XH558 returned to the air on 2nd June for the first time since the summer of 2013 following after modifications to the wing, renewal of the faulty fuel tank that took her out of action in 2013 and a full service. She has since completed all booked public displays, except the flypasts at Old Warden and Elvington, and the displays at Carlisle and Blackpool, which were all cancelled because of the weather.

Confirmed bookings for the rest of this season are Clacton, Dunsfold, Little Gransden (flypast), Clacton, Shoreham, Bournemouth, Duxford and Prestwick. See our calendar for more details and keep up to date on their web site or on Vulcan To The Sky's Twitter feed or Facebook link Facebook page.

Canadian Lancaster

The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum's Lancaster, known as 'Vera' because of its C-GVRA registration, landed safely at Coningsby on 8th August although there was no flypast with the BBMF Lancaster, Spitfire and Hurricane and the Red Arrows because of atrocious weather.

After a service, Vera returned to the air on Tuesday 12th and completed the first 2-Lancaster flight for 50 years, and a 4 ship formation, on Wednesday. On Thursday she got her Public Display Authorisation and made her debut display in Eastbourne.

Our calendar has more display dates and there are details on the owners website, warplane.com.
