  1. I will say the Vulcan looks really impressive, but over its entire active life span of 30ish years, its credited for putting some potholes in a runway and taking out a couple radar structures? Damn, talk about a massively immense waste of time and money lol. No wonder even as a moderate aviation fan I hadnt ever even heard of it until the other day..

  2. We used to wake up, half an hour before we went to sleep, lick run-way clean wit' tongue, then work; twenty-seven hours a day, ten days a week, down at Avro factory……AND, we used to have t'pay manager f't apprenticeship!…. Tell that t'kids t'day, and they'll not believe ya."….

  3. I noticed the engines were very close to the fuselage like the infamous Comet passenger jet. Was there ever any problems like with the Comet?

  4. Bob Lindley does not get the credit he deserves. He had a hand in the Avro Canuck and Arrow and the space shuttle as well. Roy Chadwick may have given the go ahead for the design, but it was Mr Lindley who came up with the idea for the Vulcan.

  5. That is why I am concerning, that Canadian developed and made, one of the >>> CF-105 Avro "ARROW" >>>,(RF 202 or 206), has successfully escaped from being cut to the pieces by Canadian torches, and being untouched somehow ended up in Britain, because it was the same AV Ro. Company, which made the BOTH airplanes: CF-105 Avro ARROW (Arctic interceptor) & then Avro VULCAN (Arctic bomber) !!!!!

  6. Top of the range..Wonder how politicians that kill time,money,dedication,ideas,enthusiasm,skill,craftsmanship etc..at the stroke of a pen,sleep at night..

  7. The Avro Vulcan..Probably the most beautiful plane every built. Definitely in the top 10. Put the Comet and the Lockheed Constellation looking wise as in the civilian aspect aesthetically.✈️

  8. Back in the days when testing the prototype meant "Dressing for the Occasion!" I have never seen a 500 Ton Rubber Press Operator in a Suit and Tie! You have to love the British for their sense of formality and fair play. "Jolly good show…. Tea anyone?" As for technical achievements….. World leaders. Look at the Spitfire, Merlin Engine, Whittle Jet Engine, and Radar to mention just a few. Also, Trains….. they just re-produced the Tornado, a coal fired steam locomotive capable of sustained speeds up to 100 MPH to be able to haul tourists and share the main line. Lots of examples of engineering, design, & workmanship. As for the Vulcan…. if you have never seen one fly in person…. you have truly missed a great experience. For several years, the Vulcan came for the annual Abbotsford Air Show in British Columbia Canada. A highlight of the show to see it perform steep and tight maneuvers all within the confines of the airfield. So massive a wing, they called it the "Aluminum Overcast." I saw it several times and was amazed every time.

  9. It is quite hilarious that the film director (2006 ??) has casually inter-mixed the Mk.1 and Mk.2 variants.  Perhaps this happened during the 1950-60's.  [Aussie in BC]

  10. Commentary by that well known actor John Standing with his distinctive voice.  But most don't know that his full title is:  Sir John Ronald Leon Standing, 4th Baronet.

  11. It was an awesome plane and I'm happy to have seen her last displays live.
    What I didn't know about the Vulcan is the use of composite materials, processed in the same way they process carbon fibre composites now.
