Original motion text

That this House congratulates the 'Vulcan to the Sky Appeal' for their successful application to the Heritage Lottery Fund; notes that this funding will allow important restoration work to begin on the XH558 Avro Vulcan B Mk2 in 2004, allowing it to return to display flight; further notes that the V-bombers, of which the Vulcan is the outstanding example, were the last large military aircraft to be entirely British in design and manufacture; recognises the contribution that the Vulcan's vast delta wing made to the design, power and manoeuvrability of Concorde; acknowledges the very high level of public support for returning the Vulcan to the air; appreciates the Vulcan's contribution to world peace, as a key component of NATO's nuclear deterrent during the Cold War and Britain's successful Falklands campaign; and looks forward to the Vulcan making a successful flight.
