 An Avro Vulcan BMk2 of No. 617 (Dambuster) Squadron thunders into the air in a scene from the early 1960s. Painted in all-white anti-nuclear flash markings these Vulcans formed the mainstay of the R.A.F. nuclear strike force.

Sorely missed on the air display circuit, this Vulcan is pictured flying high over Niagra Falls. Used as a heavy bomber and particularly in the Falklands War of 1982, just the sound of the engines and the vibrations of the ground announced its arrival. Rumour had it that this magnificent aircraft might make a return at some time to the air display scene but this seems to be increasingly unlikely as time passes.
Lone Ranger by John Young. (XX)

 It is ironic that, just as the RAF were beginning to retire or re-assign their ageing force of V-bombers, the situation in the Falkland Islands called for a long-distance bombing mission to disable the runway at Port Stanley which now threatened to become an operational fighter base for the Argentine Air Force.  Flying a round trip of some 8,000 miles, it was necessary for Avro Vulcan XM607 to refuel several times from a fleet of Victor tankers who themselves had to be refueled in an extraordinary relay operation, a remarkable example of planning, navigation and airmanship.  Under the code name 'Black Buck', seven such missions were carried out, using bombs and missiles fired from hastily fitted pylons beneath the Vulcan's wings.  Here, a Vulcan edges slowly toward the drogue to receive fuel from a Victor K.Mk2.
