A favourite across the Nation's Air Festivals, the jet powered Vulcan is instantly recognised for its delta wing. Operated from 1956 to 1984, this high-altitude, strategic bomber aircraft initially had no defensive weaponry, relying on high speed and altitude to evade interception. The Vulcan combined beauty and grace, with superb range and load-carrying capacities to be the epitome of power in the jet-age.
