Vulcan XH558 has been featured on the BBC’s ‘Britain’s Hidden Heritage’ last night, when John Sergeant visited Doncaster Robin Hood Airport to meet the Vulcan to the Sky team and look around the aircraft.
Featuring heritage sites and objects of interest around Great Britain, the BBC decided to visit the Vulcan and meet the team who restored this iconic aircraft and the pilots who fly it today and who operated in them during the Cold War. The Vulcan is an aircraft which has captured the imagination of the people of this country, qualifying her to be thought of as British heritage.
John Sergeant is a self confessed aircraft lover and had a special interest in this aircraft as a school boy, dreaming he would one day be a Vulcan pilot. He was allowed to fly alongside XH558 in an Extra aircraft belonging the the Blades Aerobatic Team.
The piece featured the history of the Vulcan, with lots of archive including restoration footage recorded by Primetime for our Vulcan XH558 Restoration DVDs.
