Aviation enthusiasts are invited to delve into the legacy of aviation as an historic RAF bomber will be on display at an event at London Southend Airport.

The Vulcan Restoration Trust is hosting 'Visit the Vulcan Day' tomorrow (April 21).

Visitors will have an opportunity to explore the iconic Avro Vulcan XL426 in its hangar at the airport.

The Avro Vulcan, first entering service in 1962, was withdrawn in 1984 and flown to London Southend Airport in 1986 for preservation.

Cockpit tours of the Vulcan will not be possible due to ongoing engineering work.

The event will allow attendees to have an up-close look at the Vulcan's engineering and a wide range of military artefacts.

Vintage military vehicles, historical fire engines from the 1970s and '80s, and 15 Triumph TR classic cars will be on display.

The Norfolk Great War Living History Group and the Southend Radio Control Model Flying Club will also provide entertainment.

The day will feature the Essex Yeomanry Brass Band and refreshments will be available for purchase.

Jamie Keene, events manager, said, "We're thrilled to open the doors to aviation enthusiasts and history lovers alike for Visit the Vulcan Day.

"It's a fantastic opportunity to connect with aviation history up close."

Entry will cost £8 for adults, while under-16s can enter for free and tickets can either be purchased on the day or in advance.

Visit the Vulcan Day begins at 10am and last entry is at 4pm.

Free parking is limited near the Vulcan.
