The Avro Vulcan was a part of the British “V-Bombers” series, which was composed of three high-altitude, long-range, and nuclear-capable airframes. These aircraft—Vickers Valiant, Handley Page Victor, and Avro Vulcan—were built during the Cold War to meet the post-World War II requirements of the British Air Ministry. Throughout the Cold War, this Vulcan aircraft played a crucial role in the British strategic nuclear air arm. It also doubled as a conventional bomber in some of its missions during the British Falklands War. To date, the Vulcan was the one and only jet-powered Avro airplane to enter production.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
