XH558 returned to the air on 2nd June 2014 following modifications to the wing, renewal of the faulty fuel tank that took her out of action in 2013 and a full service.
During 2014 she completed all booked public displays except the flypasts at Old Warden and Elvington and the displays at Carlisle and Blackpool, which were both cancelled because of the weather. There were no serviceability cancellations.
The Vulcan's final flight of the season was a 2-hour 'Cold War' tour of RAF stations on 25th September. See our Facebook entry for more details of this flight.

RAf Cosford Air Show will celebrate the 70th anniversary of VE Day, including a Victory Village with music, food, vehicles and exhibitions of the era, recreating the look and atmosphere of 1945.
It will be a ticket-only event for the first time in order to speed up entry.
Tickets, priced at £22 for an adult (accompanied under 16s and parking are free), are on sale now.
The first static displays to be announced are the Westland Whirlwind HAR10; Tutor T1EA; Harrier GR3 and Jaguar GR3. For tickets and more details go to the RAF Cosford Air Show web site.
VeRA arrived home in Hamilton to a fanfare welcome at about noon local time on Sunday 28th September. Her journey back from the UK had been delayed at Iceland because of the weather and an unscheduled fuel stop in Greenland.
The Lanc had completed most of its displays since arriving in the UK on 8th August. The main exceptions were Bournemouth and Shoreham, which had to be cancelled when a serious problem with engine 4 during a local flight from Durham Tees Valley on Friday 29th August took her out of action until 3rd September. Her tour resumed afterwards, complete with new engine.
