Last flying Vulcan XH558 on display at Robin Hood Airport

If old planes are your thing, then get yourself along to Robin Hood Airport this Easter weekend.

The last flying Vulcan, XH558 has arrived at the airport and will be on display from the viewing gallery at Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield every day between the 22nd April (Good Friday) and the 2nd May (11am – 4pm).

Mike Morton, Doncaster Sheffield Airport director said: “We were delighted to hear that the Vulcan XH558 was returning home after all these years to spend the summer in Doncaster. Since her arrival the sun hasn’t stopped shining!

“This forthcoming Bank Holiday period is an incredible opportunity, giving both enthusiasts and local residents alike the chance to view the last flying Vulcan in all her stunning glory. It will be a magical spectacle.”

From the viewing gallery, visitors will be able to see the Vulcan XH558 parked up outside, take photographs, try the flight simulator and visit the shop for lots of Vulcan memorabilia. Volunteers will be on hand to answer questions about the stunning craft.

Entry to view the plane is free, but you will need to pay for parking. However, if you make a purchase from Wetherspoons – in the main terminal building – you will be offered a discounted parking ticket, costing £3 (saving you up to £7).

In order to get to the viewing gallery just enter the main terminal building and follow the signs.
