Vulcan Summer Taxi-Run

London Southend Airport

Join us at our Vulcan Summer Taxi-Run and see Vulcan XL426 blast down the London Southend Airport runway on Saturday 7 September.

Viewing will be from the Trust’s exclusive visitor area in front of its hangar. This will give an uninterrupted view across the airport and unrivalled photographic opportunities.

XL426 will make two taxi-runs down the runway. The second pass will be at high-speed and the Vulcan will then taxi back to the apron area, giving a superb close-up view as the Vulcan taxies in and shuts down her engines.

Gates will open at 11.30 am and the taxi-run will start at 1.00 pm.

Arrive early to soak up the atmosphere and watch XL426 being prepared for the afternoon’s event.

Teas, coffees and hot and cold refreshments will be on sale throughout the day.

The event is open to the public and Vulcan Restoration Trust (VRT) Members. Numbers are limited and tickets are now on sale. Prices are as follows:

Public Adult: £50.00; VRT Member Adult: £25.00; Under-16 (must be over 6 years of age): £15.00.
