Last Vulcan bomber to miss Jubilee

Have your say

THE last flying Vulcan bomber will be grounded in South Yorkshire throughout the bank holiday, engineers have confirmed.

Two of the Cold War jet’s engines are broken beyond repair, meaning it will not be able to take part in Jubilee events for which it had been booked.

Both engines on the port side are beyond repair because of a breakdown on Monday, which closed the runway at Robin Hood Airport in Doncaster for 90 minutes.
