Avron Vulcan Owner’s Workshop Manual

B1633

Haynes have again used their well tried owner’s manual approach and produced a book which would not enable a team of engineers to keep a Vulcan flying, but provides an impressive view into the Vulcan, how its systems work and how it is flown. Colour is used throughout so there are some outstanding photographs in full colour. There are colour photographs of the cockpit area and many detailed drawings of components and system layouts. This is a book that every enthusiast will want to buy and it will appeal to many people who do not normally study aircraft books. A valuable addition to any aviation library.

DESCRIPTION: The Vulcan from Avro followed the Vickers Valiant and the Handley Page Victor into RAF service in the early 1950s to provide Britain with delivery systems for nuclear weapons. The Valient arrived first and was also the first V Bomber to be converted as an aerial refuelling tanker to extend the range of the Victor and Vulcan. The Victor came next and was the second V Bomber to convert to tanker duties in which role it gave sterling service. The Vulcan was to be the only V Bomber to drop bombs in the twilight of her service when she carried conventional bombs all the way to the Falklands in 1982 in the Black Buck raids that were intended to deny the Argentine bandits the use of the main airport for fast jets. The Vulcan was a unique and awesome machine that has always impressed crowds at air displays. It was therefore a major achievement for a trust to establish and return a Vulcan to flight for air displays. Haynes have again used their well tried owner’s manual approach and produced a book which would not enable a team of engineers to keep a Vulcan flying, but provides an impressive view into the Vulcan, how its systems work and how it is flown. Colour is used throughout so there are some outstanding photographs in full colour. There are colour photographs of the cockpit area and many detailed drawings of components and system layouts. This is a book that every enthusiast will want to buy and it will appeal to many people who do not normally study aircraft books. A valuable addition to any aviation library.
