The Vulcan Story
An RAF iconic delta wing cold war leviathan the, Vulcan is an enduing image. A cornerstone of Britain's nuclear deterrent it later worked as a conventional bomber and saw active service in the Falklands conflict. This illustrated book, written with the help of the 'Vulcan to the Sky Trust' continues the Vulcan story with the development of the B2 to the final operational use as a tanker platform. The book follows the final service flight of the Vulcan to the newly restored, with the help of Heritage Lottery Funding, only airworthy Vulcan B2 XH558 which in many ways fills the gap left by Concorde's retirement. As WWII finally came to an end military minds were already looking to the future designing weaponry that would prevent such a conflict again. This DVD looks at the design, development and production of what was to become the Vulcan Mk1. From early conception to test flights, the DVD examines how this instantly recognisable plane went form drawing board to RAF service.
