Plane fans will not see the Vulcan taking flight during its farewell tour of the country.
The bomber had been due to speed over the Cheshire skies, as well as North Wales, but the route has now been changed.
Setting off from Doncaster the XH558 was due to perform two orbital tours of the country, a Northern leg during Saturday 10 October and a Southern leg on Sunday 11 October.
Organisers have now revealed the final routes and times for the flypast but Cestrians will be disappointed to see Chester and the surrounding area no longer on the route.
A glimmer of hope has been given as the Vulcan will now do at least two more flights in late October although the route has not been revealed for these.
A statement from the organisers said: “This coming weekend, XH558 will take-off on two large orbital tours of the country, visiting as many places as we can sensibly cover within the operational constraints and time we have available. With flight times expected to be over three and a half hours each day, we also have to consider the limits of fuel-load and of course, the comfort of our flight crews in very cramped and high workload conditions.
“Please be aware that due to various permissions and agreements, the routes vary from those originally published over 10 days ago. We have also listened to public opinion to arrive at what we believe will be the best possible solution in light of all the restrictions placed upon us in operating XH558.
“Although flight paths may vary once announced and XH558 is airborne, the turning points we reveal will be our intended destinations given favourable weather conditions.”
Earlier this week concerns had been raised by Doncaster’s Robin Hood Airport authorities about the level of demand from spectactors.
