Vulcan XH558’s engines were re-started for the first time in August 2007. Finally, 14 years after its last flight & with over £7 million spent, Vulcan XH558 roared into the air again on Thursday 18th October 2007. An unforgettable day for the Vulcan to the Sky team. XH558 was finally granted her Permit to Fly on 3rd July 2008, and returned to air displays two days later at a packed RAF Waddington Airshow, her former home.
