Vulcan to return to Weston Air Festival

The mighty Avro Vulcan Bomber has just been confirmed as one of the headline displays on Sunday at this year’s Weston Air Festival and Armed Forces Weekend taking place on 20 and 21 June. The Avro Vulcan XH558 returned to flight in 2007, following an award winning restoration programme. As the last airworthy Vulcan, she returned triumphantly to the air display circuit in 2008 and has been a significant crowd puller at every show at which she has since appeared. Councillor Felicity Baker said “We are delighted the magnificent Vulcan will be appearing at our Air Festival once again. This iconic aircraft is a huge hit with visitors whenever it flies, and promises to be a firm crowd favourite.” More spectacular air displays will soon be revealed. The beach lawns will also be packed with military displays, activities and performances over the whole weekend, so don’t miss out on the fun!
