2015 – June – XH558

XH558 is the last airworthy Avro Vulcan bomber in the UK, and this year is the last year that the aircraft would be flying.
Because of this, the aircraft did a farewell tour of all the static, non-airworthy Vulcans in the UK.

I was lucky enough to capture this deadly, but strangely graceful and magnificent aircraft as it overflew the National Museum of Flight at East Fortune
