This is old news, the aircraft was sold last week on Ebay for around £14,000 to a Pub owner who intends to display it in a field behind his pub. Apparently the aircraft needs a LOT of work, with most of the cockpit in ruins from vandals, and heavy rusting on the undercarraige making it unsafe. I did consider bidding, with a limit of £12,000, but the sheer state of the aircraft makes it next to impossible to restore without a LOT of money and non origional parts.

I seem to recall a few years ago when I was at Donington Circuit UK that there was a Vulcan rotting in the EMA grave yard. This wouldn't have been the same one would it?

The Vulcan is an extremely beautiful aircraft. It is a real shame to think they are rusting away in a field, neglected. Too bad there is not some aviation high school where they could be refurbished by students learning the airframe and powerplant trade.
