Part three continues the fascinating restoration story, covering the most intensive engineering phase of the project. All six systems of the aircraft must be rectified, re-fitted and tested.
To mark the 25th Anniversary of the Falkland conflict, Baroness Thatcher visits the hangar to lend her support to the engineering team, and meets her ‘Black Buck’ crews for the first time.
With restoration complete and the paperwork cleared, the aircraft is moved oustide for engine and taxi tests. Bruntingthorpe Airfield, XH558’s home since 1993, once more reverberates to the sound of the mighty Rolls Royce Olympus engines. The programme culminates with the historic first test flight – an incredible achievement which will mark the restoration of the Vulcan as one of the most exceptional aviation stories ever told.
