A remarkable display season that took her to supporters across the country, including 3 appearances over Rutland Water, and a remarkable chapter in British aviation history, closed when XH558 touched down for the last time on Wednesday. It was a tense morning as rain lashed the hangar with the agreed take-off time fast approaching, but thanks to the flexibility of the airport, a later slot was provided and the final flight of one of the world’s most magnificent aircraft was given the green light.

Wing residents were treated to an historic event Sunday 4th October at about 5pm. The last of the Vulcan bombers and one of the planes that flew all the way to the Falkland Islands to bomb the runway at Port Stanley did it’s (almost) final impromptu display over the Rutland Water area. It was accompanied by a small plane taking photos of its last flight.
After circling 4 or 5 times it headed for its final touch down at Robin Hood airport near Leeds. It was clearly seen from Wing in a lovely autumn evening sky.
Stop Press: We’ve just been told it will be doing another flight this weekend and possibly another last flight before the end of October. Watch this space…
