Salute to the V-Force – XH558 to visit her ‘sister’ Vulcan XM655 this Sunday 28 June 2015

We are delighted that XH558 will be appearing over Wellesbourne on Sunday 28 June after the sortie departs Doncaster airport at 1300 (current best estimate is 1330L at Wellesbourne). Come along to the Wellesbourne Market site (same location as last weekend's Wings and Wheels event) to be a part of what will probably be the last ever time to see these two Vulcans together! Gates open at 1000. Admission and parking is free, however if you want to stand very near to XM655 when XH558 flies over her ‘sister’ and be in the best position to get both aircraft in your pictures, then please put a suggested minimum cash donation of £5 in one of our 655MaPS buckets at the entrance to the airside entry point that is being specially set up for the event. This is an unmissable photographic opportunity for everyone! Volunteers from both 655MaPS and Vulcan to the Sky Trust will be in attendance at this event.

XM655 will be towed over from her usual pan next to the South Warwickshire Flying School to the runway adjacent to the Market site before the Market gates are opened at 1000. XM655's bomb doors will be open throughout the event, although the aircraft will be static and cockpit tours will not be possible.

The usual XM655 pan will be CLOSED for this event – do not visit the Loxley Lane site, nor will cars be allowed to park in the South Warwickshire Flying School car park.

We look forward to seeing you at the Wellesbourne Market site from 1000 on Sunday 28 June for an unmissable event!

One Olympus 301 has twice the power of a complete F1 starting grid.
XM655 has four of them, all serviceable.
When we make noise, WE MAKE NOIZE ! !
