Supporters offered rare components and names on the bomb-bay doors to raise money for critical winter maintenance


Vital work on the Winter Service needed to return the world's last flying Vulcan to the skies is being suspended due to a lack of cash. Dr. Robert Pleming, chief executive of the charity that operates the aircraft, told supporters that although a heartening £75,000 had been raised over the last month, a further £325,000 must be raised by the New Year to complete the first phase of the Vulcan's winter service. "There is now a significant risk that insufficient money will be found in time to prepare the Vulcan for the first displays of the 2013 season," he said. "To conserve funds, work on the aircraft will stop following engine tests mid-November."
