Family run haulage business Sussex Transport make numerous deliveries up and down the UK every day on their fleet of HIAB’s, Moffetts, 7.5t, 18t, sprinters, Curtain Side, flatbed and rigids.
Last month we made a dedicated delivery of goods on one of our HIAB trucks from Horley in Surrey to RAF Waddington in Lincoln.
RAF Waddington is the UK hub of intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance, supporting national and NATO operations.
The airfield at Royal Air Force Waddington opened as a flying training station in November 1916 teaching hundreds of pilots, including many from the US Army, to fly on a wide variety of aircraft.
By August 1961 three squadrons of Vulcans were based at Waddington, and remained there until March 1984, its planned retirement having been postponed because of the Falklands conflict.
Waddington provided the Vulcans that bombed Port Stanley and also those hastily modified for air-to-air refuelling duties.
The last airworthy Vulcan has been restored to flying condition by the “Vulcan to the Sky Trust” after years of effort and fundraising. Being the sole airworthy Vulcan, the aircraft’s airworthiness status was in peril as maintenance funding was in need before the end of February, 2010. At the last moment an anonymous benefactor presented £458,000 to the foundation, ensuring its airworthiness for both its 50th birthday and the prospect of a flight performance for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games opening ceremony in London. It is currently based at Doncaster Robin Hood Airport.
