Vulcan to the Sky Trust, based at Doncaster-Sheffield Airport at Finningley, just 15 miles from Clarborough, brought Avro Vulcan B.2 XH558 back to flight in 2007.


The Trust’s plans outlined below are now all on-hold with the closure of Doncaster/Sheffield airport and termination of the Trusts permit to house the Vulcan at Doncaster.

At the time of writing (February, 2023), the Trust is in negotiation with two potential sites to move the Vulcan to. This will almost certainly involve dismantling the aircraft before moving it and then reassembling!

After an extensive programme of flying displays this phase of the Vulcan experience had to end in 2015 due to various engineering issues. XH558 remains, however, in ‘working order’ and continues to provide visitors with first hand - and often noisy - ground running experiences.

The Vulcan - along with Vickers Valiant and Handley Page Victor were key parts of Britain’s ‘Cold War’ nuclear deterrent through the 1950s and 60s.
