When the opportunity to have a name under the wing of Vulcan XH558 began last year, before the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we intended to unveil the name plaques under XH558’s wing on 1 July 2020. When the lockdown happened we hoped that restrictions would have lifted in time to apply the plaques on the planned date. Sadly, like the rest of the UK and the world, we had no idea the impact the virus would have on the health of the nation and the world.
Unfortunately due to the restrictions caused by the pandemic we had to delay the date to apply and unveil the names under the wing for the Diamond Anniversary of XH558`s First Test Flight. In June we emailed everyone who bought a name under the wing, to advise of the delay.
As soon as we have completed the planning to fit the new name plaques, while working with all the measures applied to keep people safe, we will advise everyone who has placed a name under the wing.
Sorry for any inconvenience or disappointment caused by this delay.
