The world's only flying Vulcan bomber which has been one of the main attractions at the last two Lowestoft air shows could be grounded forever at the end of the month unless hundreds of thousands of pounds can be raised.
The trust which has restored and maintains the world's last airworthy Avro Vulcan XH558 is in danger of going into administration at the end of February unless vital funds can be raised.
The Vulcan to the Sky Trust, has now launched a survival appeal to help raise �800,000 in donations by the end of March - �300,000 of which needs to come by February 28 to secure jobs and the aircraft's future.
The organisers of the Lowestoft Seafront Air Festival have backed the trust's call to arms as it is hoped that the aircraft will soar over Lowestoft again this summer as the popular event returns to the town on August 12 and 13.
