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.
