Avro Vulcan by rOEN911 Avro Vulcan by rOEN911
The Avro Vulcan (sometimes referred to as the Hawker Siddeley Vulcan) is a jet-powered delta wing strategic bomber, which was operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF) from 1956 until 1984. Aircraft manufacturer A V Roe & Co (Avro) designed the Vulcan in response to Specification B.35/46. Of the three V bombers produced, the Vulcan was considered the riskiest option. Several scale aircraft, designated Avro 707, were produced to test and refine the delta wing design principles.
The Vulcan B.1 was first delivered to the RAF in 1956; deliveries of the improved Vulcan B.2 started in 1960. The B.2 featured more powerful engines, a larger wing, an improved electrical system and electronic countermeasures (ECM); many were modified to accept the Blue Steel missile. As a part of the V-force, the Vulcan was the backbone of the United Kingdom’s airborne nuclear deterrent during much of the Cold War. Although the Vulcan was typically armed with nuclear weapons, it was capable of conventional bombing missions, a capability which was used in Operation Black Buck during the Falklands War between Britain and Argentina in 1982.

The V-Bombers... beautiful birds. Wish they saw a more useful service life. The Vulcan is by far my favourite. Which, pray tell, of the three V-bombers is yours?

As a kid I used to watch the Vulcan take off and fly past our house from Filton airfield, with the Concorde engine straped underneath it , testing the engine before it was certified to go into Concordes , that to was awesome.

This is a great work. I was fortunate to see a Vulcan bomber flying at an Air Show in the UK in the early 1980's. We were on an American Air Force base and the RAF Vulcan stole the show.

You rendering is exceptional.
