VULCANS PRACTICE DISPLAY FLYING
For a while in the 1980's RAF Marham was home on separate occasions to two Vulcan Bombers XL 462 and XH 558. These were used for flying displays at various air shows around the country.  XL 462 on retirement was purchased privately and placed on the civil register as G-VJET. It was hoped to restore it to flying condition, however the cost was prohibative. It was subsequently purchased by a group of private enthusiasts. Vulcan XH558, is now world famous. Having  finally been restored to flying condition it became a great attraction at numerous flying displays until sadly it too had to be retired. The photographs below were taken during practice display flights.
