Vulcan bomber sale nets £15,000
The former RAF nuclear bomber put up for auction on the internet has been sold for £15,000 to a pub landlord.
A Manchester publican had the highest offer when the week long bidding closed on eBay on Saturday.
He is due to hand over a cheque to the owner Brian Bateson on Sunday at Blackpool Airport, where the plane has stood for 21 years.
A spokesman for the airport said the jet's new owner would be revealing his plans for the plane and its new home.
Earlier this week eBay had to deal with hoax bids of more than £7m.
Pilot Mr Bateson, who bought the XL391 from the RAF, had set a reserve price of £6,000.

Well hopefully it will be around for another 21 years....i remember seeing XH558(?) flying at Finningly airshow in 1991 and i was mesmerized by it. Does anyone know if Woodford still has their white vulcan? I've been out the country for over 2 years now so i've not kept up to speed on a lot of things.
In the dark you can't see ugly, but you can feel fat
