Every now and again being in the Redesign office feels like you’ve won golden circle tickets to a surprise show. Not only did we get to see the arrival of the lions being transported to Yorkshire Wildlife Park, but I got to witness another delivery a couple of weeks ago.
It was only when I heard a thunderous rumbling that I realised another spectacle was about to happen outside.
The Redesign office window frames Robin Hood Airport’s runway perfectly, and as I peered out I could see people waiting expectantly at the fence, staring at the sky.
It turned out that the noise was the arrival of the next thing to be re-homed at Doncaster, the only remaining Vulcan of the 134 that were built for the RAF. As RAF Lyneham is soon to be closed the Vulcan will now be kept at Robin Hood Airport for the foreseeable future.
The Vulcan has been sat outside the Redesign window ever since as the owner, Vulcan to the Sky Trust, aims to raise £225,000 to ensure the plane is ready for the air show season.
