Description

The first prototype flew on 18 May 1951 and it went on to serve in the RAF from 1952 to 1984. During this time it carried Britain's first nuclear weapon, the gravity bomb, and played an important part of the deterrence policy of the Cold War. This book provides a complete illustrated history of the Avro Vulcan, covering the period from 1947 to 1984, when it was finally withdrawn due to mounting costs. The history includes chapters on trials and development, taking flight, the Vulcan B.2 and the Black Buck attacks during the Falklands War. This account will appeal to the many Avro Vulcan enthusiasts in the UK, and to anyone interested in Britain's aviation history.show more
