On board Vulcan XH558 as it took to the sky were one thousand very special envelopes. On each is a limited edition Vulcan stamp with a unique Vulcan postmark for 18 October 2007. The day the Vulcan returned to the skies after 15 years and a £7 million refit. These little pieces of art and history were been prepared by volunteers at Bletchley Park's tiny post office to celebrate the success of the most complex restoration in aircraft history. Proceeds will go towards keeping the Vulcan flying.
Each hand prepared and individually numbered first day cover is priced at £10 GBP plus £1.50 post and packing.
