Victor by Keith Aspinall.


Victor by Keith Aspinall.

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 In its refuelling role, the type had been replaced by the Vickers VC10 and the Lockheed Tristar.

The Ultimate Deterrent by Keith Aspinall.

 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.

 Originally conceived by Sir Frederick Handley Page as a jet bomber as long ago as 1945, the project that would evolve into the HP.80 was to become one of the RAF's most enduring types. Named the <i>Victor</i>, the prototype first took to the air in December 1952, entering service with the RAF in 1957.  Incredibly, the last <i>Victor</i> was retired in 1993, the type having metamorphosed from bomber to tanker in the course of its long career, perhaps its most notable achievement being support for the longest-range bombing mission in history when a <i>Vulcan</i> bombed the runway at Port Stanley, Falkland Islands, in 1982, flying from Ascension Island.
