We are delighted to announce that XH558, the world’s only airworthy Vulcan, will be joining us at Wings & Wheels on 21 June! The aircraft, crewed by Bill Ramsey, Martin Withers and Phil Davies, will display at the airfield before departing to the Weston Air Festival. The timing is not yet confirmed, but will be in the afternoon. This will be one of the last times to see XH558 flying at Wellesbourne since 2015 has been confirmed as the venerable Vulcan’s final flying season.

Also displaying will be the Rolls-Royce Spitfire piloted by Bill Dean and scheduled to display at 1400.

But of course the star of the show is our very own XM655 which will conduct two fast taxis at 1200 and 1500.

We look forward to seeing you there....

I would suggest getting there early, I suspect the roads will be somewhat busy leading up to and around the airfield on the day.

CC.

I'm pleased about this as it will be the only chance I get to see her this year other than being lucky enough to see over head if she transits this way.

Thanks, Graham.

We moved XM655 over to 05/23 (the Saturday inactive) this evening ready for our EGR, governor checks and aircrew familiarisation runs tomorrow. Looking forward to hearing those 301s roar again ~ no underpowered howls from this beastie. :)

Brilliant Day - thanks all, well deserved attendance, 655 behaved beautifully and 558 wasn't bad either!

Nice photos Pam.
Especially like the one of XM655 & XH558 together.
Thank you for taking and sharing them.
