Look to the skies tomorrow (Saturday) for your final chance to see the last airworthy Vulcan bomber Vulcan soaring over Northumberland.
The Vulcan XH558 bomber, which has been a star of the show at the Sunderland International Airshow in the past, will be flying over the region before retiring.
The former RAF bomber will fly a circuit across northern England and Scotland on Saturday and then another circuit around southern England and Wales on Sunday.
The distinctive delta-winged jet will spend hours flying around the country on Saturday and Sunday giving its fans a last chance to see it before it is finally grounded forever later this month.
The iconic Cold War aircraft will be flying over Durham Tees Valley Airport and Newcastle Airport before heading north into Northumberland as part of a celebratory national tour, before it takes a final trip back to its home in Doncaster.
Times have yet to be confirmed but the flights are expected to start after noon each day.
This weekend’s tour is being classed as ‘the most comprehensive tour of the XH558’.
Designed to bomb Russia, the aircraft has lost sponsors over the years and it has become harder to find people capable of servicing her. As such, the decision was taken to retire her.
