#FlyYourOwnVulcan


by Ian Homer. Posted to category: General

Have fun this half term and spread the word...

#FlyYourOwnVulcan

Looking for something to keep the kids or even the grandchildren occupied during school half-term?

Well, we might have just the thing.

THIS IS JUST FOR FUN - 

 

- Who can build one in the shortest time to first flight?

- Who can make their design fly the furthest distance?

The challenges are set! 

Simply choose 1960s white (for ink saving) or Camouflage Green and Grey from the options below, print off the number of copies you need (or photocopy them) and then follow the folding guidelines.

The challenge is to modify and streamline your aircraft to get the CofG (Centre of Gravity) just right that it will maintain straight and level flight. 

Top techinical tips: Heavyweight paper or lightweight artcard work best, while a paper clip placed in the nose can give additional range by adding valuable weight and thus momentum once launched - keep trying different configurations to win!

In all, it's a lot of fun to share with your family and friends, so do please pass on a link to this page by email or perhaps send a link by social media or post up a link on your Facebook page. Let's get the nation (even the world!) building their own version of Vulcan XH558.

Who can be the budding aerodynamicist and aircraft designer in your household?

Two easy steps to build your own Vulcan!

1. Download and print your Vulcan paper plane folding instructions

2. Now select the design required at what paper size:

A4 paper sizes:

Load Camo Design     1960s (White) Design

 

8" x 11" imperial paper sizes.

Load Camo Design     1960s (White) Design

We thank everyone for their support of XH558

 

XH558 was the world's last flying all-British designed and built 4-engined jet aircraft.
