Fly In at Coventry Airport 2010

Better late than never! ;) This year, on June 12th, the airport is doing a mixture of Jaguar cars and classic aircraft click here for more details. Last year, in a short space of time, the airport put an event on in support of 'Help for Heroes'. The star of the show was the Vulcan, which if you have read my blog about the THE DAY THAT THE EARTH MOVED you will know that this is one of my favourite aircraft. On 26 September 2010 the last airworthy Vulcan flew into Baginton on what could have been its final ever public display. Fortunately funds were raised to keep her flying but XH558 relies on the public to keep it this way. On June 12th she may fly over the airport again.

The one disappointment last year was the absence of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight due to bad weather at their base. This year they are due to fly past at 15:35. Fingers crossed for good weather.

These videos I posted on youtube give a good snapshot of the 2010 Fly In:
