What is Operation Safeguard?

From the earliest days of the Vulcan to the Sky Trust’s work, the charity has always had two guiding principles, to honour those who served us in the past and to inspire future generations to make meaningful change in the world. We are proud to announce a major fundraising campaign to build The Vulcan Experience, a dedicated new home at Doncaster Sheffield Airport (DSA) that will embody those guiding principles in a unique and memorable centre.
