KA17.  Victor by Keith Aspinall.  <p>The Handley Page Victor was developed and produced by the Handley Page Aircraft Company, which served during the Cold War. It was the third and final of the V-bombers operated by the Royal Air Force , the other two V-bombers being the Avro Vulcan and the Vickers Valiant. The Victor had been developed to perform as part of the United Kingdom's airborne nuclear deterrent. The Victor was the last of the V-bombers to be retired, the final aircraft being removed from service on 15th October 1993. In its refuelling role, the type had been replaced by the Vickers VC10 and the Lockheed Tristar.<b><p>  Open edition print. <p> Image size 14.5 inches x 9.5 inches (37cm x 24cm)

The first supersonic test flight (Flight 14) was achieved on the transfer from A&AEE, Boscombe Down, to BAC Warton.  During the flight, the aircraft achieved Mach 1 on dry power only (supercruise). Following this, Beamont lit a single reheat unit only (because of problems with the other engine's reheat fuel pump), with the result that the aircraft accelerated away from the chase Lightning flown by Wing Commander James 'Jimmy' Dell, who had to catch up using reheat on both engines.  On flying the TSR-2 himself, Dell described the prototype as handling 'like a big Lightning'.
