Vulcan XL426 Taxi-Run September 2021

Vulcan XL426 will be blasting down the runway London Southend Airport on Saturday 11 September at what will be the second taxi-run event of the year.

The event will be dedicated to the memory of Norman Skinner and Pauline Skinner, the Vulcan Restoration Trust’s Founding President and Vice-President respectively, who both passed away over the winter.

We will also remember our former engineering colleague, Nick Skinner, who passed away last year.

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

After speeding down the runway, XL426 will deploy her brake parachute (subject to serviceability). XL426 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 with the taxi-run taking place at 1.00 pm.

Attendance is 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 12 years of age): £15.00

VRT Individual Members may purchase a single ticket at the discounted rate and Family Members may purchase two. There is no limit on the number of Public or Under-16 tickets VRT Members can buy for their guests.

Why not join the VRT now and take advantage of the discounted Member price as well as receiving the benefits of VRT membership?

Due to London Southend Airport rules, children under 12 cannot be admitted.

Teas, coffees and refreshments will be on sale throughout the day. Our Vulcan souvenir stall will be open for anyone wishing to take home a memento of the day.

Should it be necessary to cancel the event for any reason, we will provide full refunds on all ticket purchases. We won’t, however, be able to compensate for other costs you or your guests might incur attending the event, such as travelling or hotel costs.

Sorry – no animals allowed except assistance dogs.
