Description

Airfix A50097 Avro Vulcan XH558 1:72 scale kit Vulcan to the Sky. New.

The Avro Vulcan is a delta wing subsonic jet bomber that was operated by the Royal Air Force from 1953 until 1984. The Vulcan was part of the RAF's V bomber force, which fulfilled the role of nuclear deterrence against the Soviet Union during the Cold War. It was also used in a conventional bombing role during the Falklands conflict with Argentina. The last airworthy Vulcan, XH558 was restored to flying condition by the 'Vulcan to the Sky' Trust after a number of years of effort and fundraising. The first post-restoration flight, which lasted 34 minutes took place on 18 October 2007. It flew until 2016 and was used in display flights and commemoration of the employment of the aircraft in the Falklands Conflict.
