The Vulcan Challenge 2022

From its distinctive delta wing to the unforgettable roar of its engines the Vulcan is an icon of British engineering excellence
Although designed as a high altitude strategic bomber, the Vulcan eventually found its role as a low-level attack aircraft. Vulcans formed the backbone of Britain’s independent nuclear deterrent during the Cold War, and are famed for the legendary Black Buck raids on the Falklands in 1982.

As the RAF Museum launches the Vulcan Challenge, we’d like to inspire you with a collection of stories from the people who worked on this legendary aeroplane.
