Vulcan XM594 60th Anniversary
of Operational RAF Squadron Service
(Update 02 - 16.09.23)

On the weekend of 16th/17th September 2023 it will be sixty (60) years since Avro Vulcan XM594 entered operational squadron service with the Royal Air Force Vulcan Wing at RAF Scampton, Lincolnshire.

To mark the anniversary, we are hosting an Anniversary event that will allow members of the museum’s Cockpit Opening Team the opportunity to provide FREE cockpit access to the Vulcan, to those people on the Reserve List for the 40th Anniversary event in February 2023.

Participants for the free cockpit access to XM594 are being notified of their timed ticket arrival time for boarding the aircraft, where they will be hosted to a short explanation about the cockpit.

In addition, a series of talks by ex-Vulcan aircrew is planned to take place throughout the weekend in the Dambusters Hut; the first talk is "Vulcan B2 Operations in the Cold War" by Julian Grenfell, "If you want peace prepare for war". Around the Vulcan various former air and ground crew will be hosting walk-round tours of the XM594.

During the weekend various other museum aircraft and cockpits will be opening for viewing, as per normal, a small additional fee/donation is charged for access to these aircraft.

The event is open to the public and normal museum admission rates will apply.

Admission: Adults £10.00, Over 65s £9.00, Children £5.50 and Family ticket [2 adults & 3 children] £28.00.

Appointments are preferred for Group [15 plus people] visits, although not essential and a party rate booking information pack is available on application.
