The Vulcan XH558 bomber plane will return to the skies of Northern Ireland as the star attraction of the Air Waves international air show in September,

Plane spotters only have one chance left to catch the vintage bomber, above, in Ireland as it is to be grounded permanently after its farewell tour this Autumn.

The Vulcan, operated by the Royal Air Force, was used as a nuclear deterrent during the cold war and its design is the forerunner to Concorde.

It will perform a dramatic air display that is sure to entertain the crowds, with up to 100,000 spectators expected to swarm to the coastal resort for the airshow.

The world-famous Red Arrows will also be performing during the two day show on the 5th and 6th of September.
