Vulcan XM594 Log Books
The Search Goes On!

For more than twenty years we have hosted an ongoing social history project to record the history of our Avro Vulcan XM594.

The aircraft flew over 1,400 sorties; spread over 5,300 hours of flying; during twenty years of service with the RAF.

So far over 100 former aircrew members have freely given us access to their Log Books, this has allowed us to record details on around 700 of the sorties.

In the lead up to the 60th Anniversary of XM594 entering operational RAF squadron service with the RAF Scampton Vulcan Wing in September 1963, we still are aiming to expand on this total. Ideally we would like dates of sorties; crew member details etc.

To gather as wide a picture as possible of XM594’s service life we are also particularly keen to record specific anecdotes, memories and, or stories to accompany these Log Book entries. Any in-service pictures would also be appreciated.

So if you flew in this Vulcan, or know of somebody who did, then please contact the museum so that with your agreement we can obtain copies of your information, for inclusion in the Newark Air Museum Archive

Details can be sent via this EMAIL link and we will pass on the details to Bill O’Sullivan who is cataloguing this information for us.
