[edit] Information

Guy Martin: Last Flight of the Vulcan Bomber When the most fabulously sci-fi warplane Britain has ever made took its final flight, crowds gathered around the country from Edinburgh to the Severn Bridge to wave it on its way. “It’s going to be emotional,” says Guy Martin as he plays his part in the engineering work to get Avro Vulcan XH558 ready for its curtain call. You don’t have to be an aeroplane nut to grasp what a stunning machine it is, with its stealth-like delta wings and distinctive engine howl – although we also gather it’s an odd beast. Its 1950s design quirks include, amid all the hi-tech, a soup warmer that took 90 minutes to work (“You what?!” squawks Martin) and no ejector seats for half the crew. The mechanic joins a select crew of engineers working to prepare the last Vulcan bomber that is capable of flight for a farewell tour of the UK. The programme features contributions from former crew members, who recall its service in conflicts from the 1950s to the Falklands, as well as serving as Britain's nuclear deterrent.
