Vulcan in historic flypast
AVIATION enthusiasts and members of the public gathered to see the last airworthy Vulcan make what could be its last flypast.
The iconic plane, a Cold War-era bomber, flew over the former Avro factory in Woodford, where it was assembled before its first flight in 1960, as part of its farewell tour.
The event, which saw thousands gather to watch the historic flight, was organised as part of its V-Force tour on Armed Forces Day.
Aviation enthusiast Mel Thorley, who used to go plane-spotting at Avro as a child, said: “The Vulcan is so large, it’s incredible for it to climb the way it does.
“It’s an awesome plane.”
