Vulcan looks more Dan Dare though, it has to be said. :)

 

 

Perhaps, but the Victor looks like the sort of thing Ming the Merciless would specify...

I have to confess, I didnt know the Aussies had them. Thats very interesting.

 

 

Yep, I would imagine that photo is in Malaya too. Both RAF and RAAF Lincolns dropped heavy things on naughty boys.

There was an episode of "Airwolf" where, at the climax, the helo was supposedly flown through the explosions of a B-52 bomb drop.  The Apache photo reminded me of this.

Well the Vulcan remained in service in the bomber role for nearly 15 years after the RN took over the nuclear deterrent, and the Victor for another 10 years after that in the tanker role ...Anyway here is a very good TV programme on the British aviation industry of those days- " Cold War Hot Jets":

Interesting variation in angles of attack as the speedsters stay slow enough for the trainer...

I wondered about the wing position myself.  I can't really tell the sweep in that photo.

Was never a jet lover even when I was in the mob, but I cannot understand, why out of all the classic aircraft the RAF keep flying the Vulcan isn't one of them. I understand it would be very, very expensive, but it's such a fabulous aircraft to see flying. Such a loss.
