Watch Vulcan Bomber take off in new app

Users will be able to create their own flypasts

The iconic Vulcan Bomber will return to the skies of Bomber County this weekend in a new mobile phone app.

Just in time for the Lincoln RAF100 celebrations, a new augmented reality app will see the return of the Vulcan to Lincolnshire’s skies.

In addition to real flypasts, parades and firework displays for the RAF100 Weekend, people can download the app to create their own flypast on demand.

The Vulcan is the latest aircraft to be added to the app, which allows users to capture and collect aircrafts.

Julian Free, Deputy Vice Chancellor of the University of Lincoln, said: “The iconic Vulcan has long been associated with Bomber County and it’s wonderful that this app will now allow people to enjoy seeing it in the skies once more.

“The team at Lincoln has combined their respective expertise to deliver a first class product for the RAF.”

Air Commodore, Chris Jones, added: “The RAF100Flypast App allows users to experience the wonders of RAF aircraft in augmented reality, which is really exciting.

“The App is a fun way to showcase how the RAF has grown through innovation and technology, and we hope it will inspire the next generation of aerospace pioneers.”

It is available to download for free on the App Store and the Google Play Store.
