Iconic bomber flies over city
9:00pm Monday 1st October 2012 in News
AN historic bomber was seen in the skies above Worcester on Saturday as it took part in an anniversary tour.
The last flying Vulcan, with the call sign XH558, was captured on camera by Kevin Kirkland at about 3.30pm as it flew over the Shrub Hill area of the city during its diamond anniversary fly-over.
It took off on its round-trip flight in Doncaster, Yorkshire, before following a route past a number of sites linked to its production or service life.
The plane was making its way from RAF Cosford to Staverton airport in Gloucestershire when Mr Kirkland took the photograph.
The aircraft made the headlines after the famous bombing raid on Port Stanley airfield during the Falklands War.
