This title describes the origins of the Avro Vulcan, which entered squadron service in 1956, went back to an Air Ministry requirement, issued in 1947, for a jet bomber capable of a top speed of nearly 500 knots, able to fly at a height in excess of 50,000 feet, with a range of over 3,000 miles and capable of carrying a. nuclear weapon. The Vulcan was the most famous of the three types known, along with the Victor and the Valiant as the V-bombers, which maintained Britain's strategic nuclear deterrent during the early years of the Cold War.

Phil Butler and I have written a book on the Vulcan to be published in the Aerofax series. I find US books horrendously expensive, especially Schiffer books. In contrast £1. 9 for an good length Aerofax, or £2. 9 for Secret Projects books, seems pretty cheap. In fact, because of the forthcoming 25th Anniversary of the Falklands conflict, it is planned to come out in the summer. This is one reason why American Secret Projects has been pushed back.

Avro Vulcan �Cold War Warrior Originally designed to penetrate higher than the 1960s Soviet fighter capability, and with an operational height of 65,000ft this was achievable. The advent of improved missile technology frustrated that operational profile and the Vulcan had to follow in the footsteps of the CanberraBI8 and go down into the weeds. Re-engineered to withstand the stresses of low level flying the Vulcan was a potent threat for many more years. Seen here in typical European winter weather at it�s operational height, supposedly 250ft!

The origins of the Avro Vulcan, which entered squadron service in 1956, go back to an Air Ministry requirement issued in 1947. The requirement called for a jet bomber capable of carrying a nuclear weapon, reaching a top speed of nearly 500 knots, flying at a height in excess of 50,000 feet, and a range of over 3,000 miles. The Vulcan was the most famous of the three types of V-Bombers. Along with the Victor and the Valiant V-Bombers, the Vulcan helped maintain Britain's strategic nuclear deterrent during the early years of the Cold War. Initially finished in an all-over white color scheme to protect the aircraft and their crews from the heat and flash of a nuclear explosion, the V-Force's aircraft could be scrambled in minutes in response to any Soviet attack. V-Bombers and their crews stood on constant alert until 1969 when the V-Force handed over its nuclear deterrent role to the Royal Navy's Polaris submarines. In all, 136 Vulcans were built by Avro, the last being completed in January 1965. After it lost its nuclear deterrent function, the Vulcan found other roles as a conventional bomber, a maritime reconnaissance aircraft, and as a tanker. Its only combat action was seen in the famous Operation BLACK BUCK raids during the Falklands Conflict. At the time, these were the longest bombing missions in the history of warfare, with the Vulcans covering some 8,000 miles in around 16 hours. The aircraft was finally withdrawn from squadron service in 1984. This stunning pictorial tribute to an iconic British aircraft celebrates its return to flight and the 25th anniversary of its historic Falklands missions.
