V-Bombers

B0165

The book has 8 pages of colour illustrations but also has a host of very good BandW photographs. All three V-Bombers, Vulcan, Victor, and Valiant, are covered in a readable history of these important nuclear capable aircraft, including an account of the Black Buck missions during the Falklands War when Vulcans flew the 16,000 mile round trip, supported by Victors converted to the refuelling tanker role. The book seems to assume it has covered the end of the story but does not cover the efforts to return a Vulcan to the air display circuits.
