Vulcan XH558 to appear at Air Waves Portrush

1 Mins read

The majestic Vulcan XH558, will make its first, and potentially only appearance, at Air Waves Portrush on Saturday, 5th September.   The impressive, jet-powered delta wing strategic bomber, is in its last display season and organisers say this will be the View Articleonly opportunity to see it on the island of Ireland in 2015.

The Vulcan is an iconic example of British aerospace engineering at its world-beating best, with its technical design being the forerunner to Concorde.  Operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF) from 1956 until 1984, it was used as a nuclear deterrent during the Cold War. The XH558 is the only flying example in the world; in 2008, following a huge restoration programme, it took to the skies again and since then has been thrilling UK airshow crowds.

Probably one of the biggest draws to Air Waves Portrush this year, alongside the Viggen, Red Arrows and Typhoon, the Vulcan’s technical superiority enables an unexpected agility to produce dramatic air displays.

Air Waves Portrush takes place on 5th and 6thSeptember, 2015. Organised by Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council it is part sponsored by Tourism Northern Ireland.
