AVRO Vulcan XH558 Sky Trust - FREE Christmas Gift @ vulcantothesky.org

Found 20th Dec 2013
Working with our talented graphic designer Mark Freshney, we are delighted to offer all our supporters a simple FREE gift this Christmas time that we hope will bring hours of fun and technical challenge for the whole family.

Simply choose 1960s white (for ink saving) or Camouflage Green and Grey from the options below, print off the number of copies you need (or photocopy them) and then follow the folding guidelines.

The challenge is to modify and streamline your aircraft to get the CofG (Centre of Gravity) just right that it will maintain straight and level flight.

Top techinical tips: Heavyweight paper or lightweight artcard work best, while a paper clip placed in the nose can give additional range by adding valuable weight and thus momentum once launched - keep trying different configurations to win!

In all, it's a lot of fun to share with your family and friends, so do please pass on a link to this page by email or perhaps send a link by social media or post up a link on your Facebook page. Let's get the nation (even the world!) building their own version of Vulcan XH558.

Who can be the budding aerodynamicist and aircraft designer in your household?

We thank everyone for their support of XH558 and wish you all the compliments of the season.

Merry Christmas!

brilliant! Thank you

Nice find OP.

The size of the aircraft and that wheely at the end of the vid are awesome. Cool model too Thanks

Stunning iconic plane. I remember having a poster of it on my wall showing it refuelling in flight in '82 when I was a kid.

Wicked video - as Razorfishy says, the last 30 seconds (in particular) are superb.
I remember being at an air show when I was a kid. I ran out from under the crowd barrier & a Vulcan flew right over my head at low level. Unforgettable.
Heated; thanks for the post.

Cool.

I served at RAF Scampton from 1962 until 1964 and these aircraft were stationed there then .
Very impressive to see on the ground or in the air .
Seems a lifetime ago......

I hope there are no nukes in those presents.....scary.
