The mainstays of the RAF’s bomber force in the 1970s and 1980s were the distinctive Avro Vulcan and the rugged Blackburn Buccaneer, and both aircraft were very well regarded by those who flew or worked on them. The Buccaneer, or ‘Brick’ as it was fondly known, came into service in 1962 and flew with just five RAF and six RN squadrons before being retired in 1994. The Vulcan, or ‘Tin Triangle’, came into service in 1956 and was retired after the Falklands War in 1982 having flown operationally with nine RAF squadrons. Illustrated with 180 photographs, this book, the second of a number of books of photographs covering British combat aircraft of the 1970s and 1980s, looks at the much-loved Buccaneer and Vulcan and the part they played in the latter stages of the Cold War.
