You can walk around and underneath the Vulcan’s huge delta wings and see examples of the weapons it carried, including two 1,000 lb High Explosive bombs, the type of bomb the Vulcan dropped on Port Stanley airfield during the 1982 Falklands Conflict.
Other attractions include a display of historic fire engines and military vehicles. The Shoeburyness & South Essex Royal Artillery Association's Landrover and 25 pound gun will be on show plus a ground display of radio-controlled model aircraft.
Refreshments will be on sale and our souvenir stand will be selling a selection of Vulcan memorabilia, including models, badges, patches, postcards, books, and much more.
Admission will be by advance ticket only for timed 'slots' during the day. This is so we can comply with the Government's social distancing requirements by limiting the number of visitors we have at the event at any one time. There will be no tickets on sale on the day.

SLOT A: 10.00 am to 12.00 pm
SLOT B: 12.00 pm to 2.00 pm

Ticket purchasers will be sent full event details 10 days beforehand and a further reminder 2 days before the event.
As this is an outdoor event, wearing of face coverings isn't mandatory. However, we encourage visitors to wear them, especially when interacting with our volunteers. Please be aware, though, that our souvenir stand is indoors, so face coverings must be worn (unless you are exempt from doing so) when visiting the stand in order to comply with the COVID regulations.
Vulcan XL426's cockpit will not be open.
Sorry – due to airport rules, we regret that no pets can be admitted with the exception of assistance dogs.
