The last airworthy Vulcan aircraft will take off on a test flight today.
If all goes well, the plane's Permit to Fly will be renewed, confirming it reaches all aviation safety standards.
The plane's team is getting ready for a busy flying schedule over the Jubilee period.
The Vulcan aircraft played an important part in the Falklands Conflict, dropping bombs on the airport at Port Stanley.
Meanwhile, a keen model maker has built a mini model of the Vulcan.
