At today’s DASC symposium, Dr Robert Pleming addressed the audience of display organisers and crews with an update on the project to bring Vulcan XH558 back on to the display circuit. Funding has now been achieved for the next stage of work for further flight tests to begin. Effectively, the £150,000 mark has been reached but efforts must continue to raise £50,000 a month for the next four months. In another development, it was revealed that 2Excel Aviation, the company behind the Blades display team, are now looking after the day to day negotiations and operations with display orgainsers on behalf of the Vulcan Operating Company.
