For many years, people have dreamed of seeing Britain's last flying Vulcan Bomber in the skies again, but never dared believe that day would come. Now, with the restoration underway, the Vulcan to the Sky Trust are closer than ever to making that dream a reality.

The story starts with the contamination examination, and non-destructive testing of the airframe using x-ray, ultrasound, eddy current and videoscope. Enhanced inspections led to a thorough manual examination of the airframe looking for signs of dissimilar metal corrosion, and many systems which are no longer required have to be removed including the Red Steer radar.

A skilled group of technicians and engineers have been selected - a mix of Marshall Aerospace and Vulcan Operating Company - many of whom are former vulcan crew. Their job isn't an easy one as access to the airframe can involve awkward manoeuvring through small panels, or into confined spaces.

This DVD also features a guided tour around the hangar, an introduction to the bays including propulsion, auxiliary power units, electrical, tools stores and structures. Plus the engineers have to go back to school to study Vulcan systems and exams have to be passed before they can continue work on the aircraft.

Project managers, engineers, technicians, cleaners, volunteers, fundraisers and Trust members are all determined to achieve their challenging objective – to get the Vulcan to the Sky!
