The owners of Britain’s last airworthy Vulcan bomber have raised enough money to keep the plane serviced.
XH558 flew for the last time in 2015 but even after it was grounded, around 1000 people a month continued to visit the Vulcan at its hangar at Doncaster Sheffield airport.
The ‘Vulcan To The Sky Trust’ said it was being provided with the storage for free until the end of April but needed to raise £200,000 to keep the bomber maintained for the rest of this year.
PDSA’s founder, Maria Dickin, introduced the PDSA Dickin Medal in 1943. It is awarded to animals displaying conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty while serving or associated with any branch of the Armed Forces or Civil Defence units, and is the animals’ equivalent to the Victoria Cross.
