AVIATION fans are being invited to take afternoon tea with a difference - in the shadow of the world’s last remaining flying Vulcan bomber.

The Robin Hood Airport home of the iconic aircraft will be open on November 25 when guests will be able to enjoy sandwiches, scones, tea and coffee alongside XH558.

Vulcan To The Sky Trust guide Toni Hunter and members of the flight crew – including members of the famous 1982 Black Buck missions during the Falklands War - and technical specialists from the engineering team will all be on hand to answer questions.

There will also be an extended tour of the aircraft so guests can get up close to the world’s last flying Vulcan which is due to be grounded forever after next year’s flying programme due to the spiralling costs of maintaining the bomber.

Only a handful of tickets are available at £25 each to raise money for the winter service. To reserve your place, please call 0845 124 7285 before 3pm on November 22.
