Event Details

This event at London Southend Airport is an opportunity for everyone to see former Royal Air Force bomber Avro Vulcan XL426 up close at a very affordable price. With lots to see and no admission fee for under-16s, they are an ideal family day out. You will also have the chance to sit inside the Vulcan’s cockpit.

You can walk around and underneath the Vulcan’s huge delta wings and see a rare example of a WE177B nuclear bomb as well as two 1,000 lb High Explosive bombs, the type of bomb the Vulcan dropped on Port Stanley airfield during the 1982 Falklands Conflict.

Special attraction for the day is the 10th Essex Living History Group which will be displaying its replica World War 1 Nieuport 12 and DH.2 aircraft.

The Shoeburyness & South Essex Royal Artillery Association will have its field gun and Land Rover on display and Southend Radio Controlled Flying Club will be bringing along a selection of its aircraft for all to see.
