Vulcan and Lancasters in historic flight

Doncaster’s Vulcan bomber joined forces with the world’s last two remaining Lancasters for a historic fly-past.

The three planes will never fly together again but came together in the skies above RAF Waddington, watched by thousands of spectators who swarmed into Lincolnshire to capture a glimpse of the ‘Three Sisters’ in action.

The Vulcan replaced the Lancaster as the RAF’s bomber aircraft after World War Two, and it is the first time two Lancasters have flown together in the UK since the 1950s.
