Midland Air Museum Vulcan

Possibly the largest aircraft at the museum (or is the Argosy) but certainly one of the most iconic is the Avro Vulcan which has been named City of Coventry. The aircraft came out of RAF service back in 1982 and was moved to the museum in 1983 where it has been ever since. The aircraft is very original being pretty much as it was when in RAF service. It is also possible to have a cockpit tour of the aircraft. Even in the current climate the museum has decided that sufficient distancing is possible and generally they only allow one or two members of the public at a time, as long as they are masked up.

Anyway, it seemed rude to pass up the opportunity for a closer look and this is now the second example I have been in following the Newark Vulcan a little while back. The museum guide was very friendly and informative and I was pleased that I took up the offer of a closer look.

Nice images. So many controls, meters and dials. It is amazing what skill these men must have had.
