For the members of the VTST team, a very successful Royal International Air Tattoo this month provided both bad and good news. It goes without saying that the bad news was that XH558 could not be there to delight the record crowds. The good news was that everyone to whom we spoke understood the reasons for that situation; and expressed the view that, after so many years without a Vulcan at Fairford, it was well worth waiting until RIAT 2008 to ensure her appearance there. Next year’s event will, of course, be one of the high points of the RAF’s celebration of its 90th birthday. It will be especially pleasing if it could be marked by the appearance in formation of those two most admired features of any major air display – the Vulcan and the Red Arrows. Now that will be something to celebrate.

A reading of this web-page, now updated on a weekly basis, should be enough to prove to anyone that we really are reaching the dramatic point of first flight. No project of this size and complexity could have avoided the occasional set-back. We have had our share of those – and there may yet be one or two to come. But every member of the dedicated team at Bruntingthorpe and every one of us who has supported them over the years must, at last, see that we are within touching distance of an historic event. When XH558 again lifts off from the Bruntingthorpe runway, it will mark both the end of one great enterprise and the start of another: keeping the aircraft on public display for at least 10 more years. That will be our next challenge – but one we can’t wait to face.
There was a better way to fly it was called Concorde

That's real good news. Now for the first flight. I sure do wish someone could conduct a similar project with the Handley Page Victor.
Dare to dream; dream big!
