Hi all
I have secured 24 places to go and visit and fully working Vulcan Bomber on 22 June, I have only managed to fill 12 of the spaces so want to open it up to the national club:

Location: Wellesbourne, Warwick CV35 9EU

We ask for a donation of £10 per head to cover:

• Systems Demonstration (subject to serviceability on the day), which involves putting power on the aeroplane (without running the engines) and operating certain systems, including:
the control surfaces (elevons and rudder);
the navigation, anti-collision and landing lights;
operating the air brakes;
opening (or, if at the end of the visit, closing) the bomb bay doors.
During this time visitors are escorted around the aeroplane to ensure the best view and opportunities to take photos.

• A tour of XM655, including a visit to the cockpit, in groups of 4. This covers the engineering aspects of what we do to maintain the aeroplane, as well as Vulcan history and the history of our aeroplane in particular. During the tour, various doors and panels will be open to enable viewing and photographs. There is usually also the opportunity to view the Vulcan from different angles, including from above for those who are happy to climb the steps to the top of our 'giraffe'.

• A DVD of XM655 will be running indoors. Tea, coffee and merchandise will be available and our volunteers will be happy to talk to visitors and answer questions throughout the visit.

• A photoshoot with your group (including bikes) in front of the Vulcan.

The visit takes around 2.5 hours (including the photoshoot) and a recent visitor uploaded a review onto youtube recently which gives a good idea of what this entails: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIqNuYyaafU
