XH558 will depart to transit to RNAS Yeovilton this Friday lunchtime.* See our social media on the day for latest updates.

While based there, XH558 will leave earlier on Saturday for a display at Swansea at the Wales National Air Show, returning via Penarth with a booked flypast, before entering her display at RNAS Yeovilton

So if I read the XH558 newsletter correctly, there is a chance that we'll see the Vulcan take -off on the Saturday morning, then watch it land after the Welsh Show then take-off again to do the Yeovilton Show ...and then land at Yeovilton?

Or it takes off Saturday morning, does the Welsh show then flies back to do the Yeovilton Show then departs back to base.

It will take off from Yeovilton in the morning, display at the Wales National Airshow then perform a flypast at Penarth and finally come back to Yeovilton and go straight into its display and I assume then land at Yeovilton where it will stay until it transits to Fairford as that is what it has done in previous years.

In the last newsletter I got via email, I believe it stated that she will land back at Yeovilton after her display, where "under wing" tours will occur.

This is correct as stated on the website, how long it will remain at Yeovilton is anyones guess though, will it stay there for 5 days until it needs to depart for RIAT?!

It often seems to be the case that it will stay at Yeovilton until RIAT - given that they've got fairly limited money for fuel, (and a need to preserve engine life;) a trip all the way back up to Doncaster seems fairly unnecessary when compared to the alternative of parking it for 5/6 days and making a shorter hop to Fairford instead.

Latest twitter post is that they're looking at a 13:30hrs departure today with an arrival at Yeovilton at around 15:00hrs.
Routing via Newark , Bourton-on-the-Water , Kemble , then Chippenham.
Map of today's planned routing is here : https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=zJoGZd3-Qg5U.kyie6P5kICb8
