Discovery Civilisation Documentary.
The Vulcan was designed in response to a specification issued in 1947; a four engined nuclear bomber was required to counter the growing menace of the Soviet Union. Avro immediately began an unusual design based on a delta wing concept and within a matter of months the design had been submitted and had won the contest
The first prototype was ready for its first flight in 1952. Test pilot Roly Falk took VX770 up and watched only by Avro employees and a small band of press. Latter Falk actually rolled the Vulcan on returning to Avro's Woodford base; he did it so low and so noisily that he smashed all the skylight windows in the assembly building!
Latter a Falklands veteran gives his account of flying the Vulcan in combat
