Vulcan News is the Trust’s own magazine which is published twice a year and sent free to all members.
It began life in the early 1990s as the Vulcan Memorial Flight Supporters Club Newsletter before it adopted its current title in 1993. Under the editorship of Dave Griffiths, Vulcan News grew from being an A5 photocopied booklet to a fully professionally printed magazine in 1996, with the first full colour issue being published in 2009. As well as news about the restoration of XL426 at London Southend Airport, Vulcan News also featured contributions from former Vulcan air and ground crew who provided a wide range of articles about their experiences flying and maintaining the Vulcan during their time with the Royal Air Force.
After Dave stepped down as editor in 2014, there was a two-year hiatus before Vulcan News re-appeared this time under the auspices of a joint editorial team comprising Vanessa Conroy, Richard Clarkson and Pete Rainey. Although reverting to A5 size, Vulcan News remains full colour, with each issue featuring an in-depth review of recent engineering work on XL426 together with news of upcoming events and other items of interest.
Back copies of Vulcan News are available at events from the Vulcan Restoration Trust’s souvenir stand.
