The Avro Vulcan was the world's first large delta-wing strike aircraft. It entered service as a V-bomber with the RAF's Bomber Command squadrons in July 1957 with the capability to carry a 21,000 lb conventional bomb load - or an atomic bomb. The larger, more powerful B2 version, capable of flying 46,000 miles without refueling, appeared in 1960. This documentary profiles the Vulcan bomber, from the earliest test flights at Avro Woodford to the final flight of the very last Vulcan, XH-558, when it touched down at Bruntingthorpe airfield on 23rd March 1993.
