The Avro Vulcan (later Hawker Siddeley Vulcan from July 1963) is a jet-powered tailless delta wing high-altitude strategic bomber, which was operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF) from 1956 until 1984. ... Several reduced-scale aircraft, designated Avro 707, were produced to test and refine the delta wing design principles.
The only remaining flying Vulcan bomber has landed for the last time. The distinctive delta-winged Cold War aircraft, which once carried Britain's nuclear deterrent, took off from Doncaster Robin Hood Airport for a short final trip on Wednesday afternoon.28 Oct 2015.
Roe and Company (Avro) designed the Vulcan in response to Specification B.35/46. ... Although the Vulcan was typically armed with nuclear weapons, it was capable of conventional bombing missions, a capability which was used in Operation Black Buck during the Falklands War between the United Kingdom and Argentina in 1982.
The Avro Vulcan is an iconic example of British aerospace engineering at its best. XH558 now resides in Doncaster where it is used to educate and inspire.
