|Avro Vulcan B Mk.1|
|MiGMan's Combat Diary||
I did have a look at RAF Waddington in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002 but the scenery was very sparse. At least the British bases get a good showing, unlike the poor Russians!
To see the mighty Vulcan in action check out the James Bond movie Thunderball. What an utterly fantastic looking aircraft - a flying sculpture!
These screenshots were taken in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002 near RAF Valley, UK.
The prototype Vulcan, the Avro 698, first flew in 1952 and was a great success.
This radical airframe was designed as a long-range nuclear bomber, but had the manouverability of a fighter. Of the 3 British V-Bombers it is the Vulcan which was most popular with pilots and public alike.In its B2 guise it adapted well to the low-level role and was used in anger during the Falklands campaign.
This aircraft is from No. 230 OCU, RAF Waddington, mid/late 1950's.
Date: August 1999 / March 2000
Gauges - actual size
The NAV panel displays your trim settings - what a good idea!
Note the crew entry stairs.
