The Victory Show at Foxlands Farm (Cosby) will be held this weekend and on Sunday (weather permitting of course), visitors will be able to see the XH558, the world’s last flying Vulcan and a symbol of British aviation during the Cold War, take to the skies. This will be the first Vulcan appearance at the show in three years and is intended to mark the 60th anniversary of the first Vulcan flight and the 30th anniversary of the Falklands Conflict – the last time the Vulcan bombers saw action.
The Victory Show itself will run all weekend and there will be plenty to see and enjoy for the whole family on the 100 acre site – including over 50 authentic Second World War re-enactment displays along with more that 200 military vehicles plus (for the kids) there will be tank rides, miniature steam train rides, model aircraft and a model boating lake.
However and besides the Vulcan, aviation buffs will enjoy an air show featuring two Spitfires, a Hurricane, three P-51 Mustangs, two P-40 Warhawks, a C-47 Dakota and plenty of other classic aircraft.
