THE VULCAN STORY

THE VULCAN STORY

DVD - As World War Two finally came to a close, military minds were already looking to the future and to the design of weaponry that would hopefully prevent such a waste of life again. Using archive footage, this DVD looks at the design, development and production of what would become an iconic bomber - the Vulcan Bomber Mark 1. From early conception to test flights, we examine how this instantly recognisable plane went from the drawing board to service in the RAF.

BOOK - An RAF iconic delta-wing Cold War leviathan, the Vulcan is an enduring image. A cornerstone of Britain's nuclear deterrent, it later worked as a conventional bomber and saw active service in the Falklands Conflict. This illustrated book, written with the help of the 'Vulcan to the Sky Trust', continues the Vulcan story with the development of the B2 to the final operational use as a tanker platform. The book follows the final service flight of the Vulcan to the newly restored (with the help of Heritage Lottery Funding) last airworthy Vulcan B2 XH558, which in many ways fills the gap left by Concorde's retirement.
