Flight One presents the Greatest V-Bomber Of Them All: The Vulcan

The famous Vulcan-to-the-Sky XH558, Falklands war, Blue Steel nuclear and Tanker variants are included plus period scenery of RAF Cottesmore. The Avro Vulcan’s powerful lines and distinctive shape make it an icon of cold-war aviation. The Vulcan first flew in 1952 and its varied life is shown in RAF Vulcan from the testing of Britain’s nuclear deterrents to its vital role in helping re-capture the Falklands in 1982. Included is period scenery of RAF Cottesmore and even a repaint kit to allow you create your own liveries. Thanks to the tireless efforts of many people and a Heritage Lottery Fund grant, XH558 is due to return to the sky once more, but FS2004/2002 pilots can avoid the wait with RAF Vulcan now!

There are four variants of XH558 included, covering its appearance in 1960, 1970, 1981 and the present day. RAF Vulcan also comes with six other Vulcan examples in different Squadron liveries and with different model variations, including the 2K Tanker variant.
