The Avro Vulcan was the last V Bomber to see active service in its primary role during the Falklands conflict. It is the most popular of the three and one aircraft has recently become airborne again after a long period of rejuvenation. It has always been a major attraction at air shows throughout the world, attracting crowds who delight in its unique delta-wing shape and amazing maneuverability.

The book examines the origins of the design, the prototypes and experimental aircraft and goes on to explain the modifications that were made to the last of the breed.

The author has access to many previously unpublished photographs and experimental design plans. This is because he is a leading member of the Avro Heritage Centre and discovered a great deal of unpublished material in their archives.


A marvellous compendium. It is a tremendous book for dipping into and for finding yet another serendipitous piece of fascinating information. The content and the price of the book are right. Like clever clogs I tried to find some howlers to point up, but I couldn't. Royal Aeronautical Society Journal
