My first time I seen Vulcan 558 was at south port air show in 2009. It was amazing to see her as she glided from our right hand side just a few minutes before she done a fly past of her birth place of Woodford it was a sight. I’ll never forget this was the year 558 had her past captain David Thomas at the controls as he applied full power for the climbs, the graceful manoeuvres gear down approaches before I knew it it was all over.

558 departed towards Liverpool and back home safely every year. I have seen 558 at her best at least I can say I was there to see the spirit of Great Britain.
