Will you be attending Sunderland International Airshow next month?

THE world’s last flying Avro Vulcan bomber is set to wow the crowds at the 2011 Sunderland International Airshow on July 30 and July 31.

The giant of the skies, designed to carry nuclear weapons during the Cold War, last spread its wings at the airshow two years ago, and will be putting in an appearance on both days.

More than eight hours of flying displays are promised for visitors to the 23rd annual airshow, which is organised by Sunderland Council.

The event takes place between 10am and 6pm on both days, with a full programme of activity in the air and on the ground across the weekend.

A launch party and live music in Cliffe Park, Roker, with fireworks and a sunset flying display, is lined up for July 29, between 7pm and 10pm.
