About the Vulcan

With its gigantic, delta-shaped wing and sleek, graceful lines, the Avro Vulcan is one of the most distinctive aircraft produced in Great Britain since the end of the Second World War.

It is also one of the most important. Its pioneering design was fundamental in furthering our understanding of advanced aerodynamics, and it helped develop technologies that would later be incorporated into the design of Concorde.

As part of the Royal Air Force’s ‘V-Force’, the Vulcan was at the spearhead of the West’s nuclear deterrent, and played a vital role preventing conflict during the darkest days of the Cold War.
