Vulcan bomber carol service hits all the right notesDecember 19, 2014
Children and teachers from Armthorpe Tranmoor Primary School in Doncaster took part in a special Christmas carol service around the world’s last remaining flying Vulcan bomber.
Participants sang carols just feet away from Vulcan XH558, which is stationed at Robin Hood Airport Doncaster Sheffield.
The visit was organised by company Vulcan Experience, who allow around 12,000 people per year to get up close and personal with the special aircraft.
Children and teachers were also taken on a terminal tour and for lunch in the viewing lounge.
Steve Gill, Managing Director at Doncaster Sheffield Airport, said: “We are delighted to help spread some festive cheer and enable the children to take part in a truly unique carol service.
“We’re proud to have the last remaining flying Vulcan at the Airport and it’s an honour to be able to offer this opportunity to a local primary school.”
Ian Straw, Business Manager at Vulcan Experience, said: “I’d like to thank First Buses for making this visit possible.
“Historically we have struggled to get school visits to the hangar because of transport issues but our new partnership with First has enabled us to overcome this and hopefully now this can become an annual event.”
