Just Flight’s Avro Vulcan B Mk. 2, K.2 & MRR review

The iconic British V bomber lands in Microsoft Flight Simulator

It's a sad thought that many of you reading this review will never experience the sight and sounds of a Vulcan in flight. It was truly a magnificent and awe-inspiring aircraft. The last surviving airworthy example, XH558 (civil aircraft registration G-VLCN), also known as the Spirit of Great Britain, last flew in 2015.

It was the efforts of the Vulcan to the Sky Trust in 2007, who together with its army of supporters, managed to raise enough capital to get the aircraft into a flying condition. Since then, the commercial companies who originally supported the project have unfortunately withdrawn their support, so it's now only kept in taxiable condition and is unlikely ever to fly again.
