London Southend Airport, Essex, UK. 12th Dec, 2020. Avro Vulcan B2 bomber serial number XL426 was delivered to the Royal Air Force in 1962 and served through the Cold War as part of the nuclear deterrent and beyond until retirement in 1986, after which it was bought for display by an individual at Southend. After languishing for years it was taken on by the Vulcan Restoration Trust, a charity run by volunteers, who have restored it to ground running conditions. Today they held a rare high speed run down Southend’s runway, passing the many grounded easyJet planes
