The mainstays of the RAF’s bomber force in the 1970s and ’80s were the distinctive Avro Vulcan and the slightly less well-known Blackburn Buccaneer. The Buccaneer came into service in 1962 and flew with just five RAF and six RN squadrons before being retired in 1994. The Vulcan came into service in 1956 and was retired after the Falklands War in 1982, having flown operationally with nine RAF squadron. Illustrated with 180 photographs, this book details the much-loved Buccaneer and Vulcan and the part they played in the latter stages of the Cold War.

REVIEWS
-

"​Highly recommended."

- AMPS Indianapolis

"The photos, and there are many, many of them, are of value to the modeler for the different markings shown rather than detail shots of landing gear, ejector seats and such which some may be looking for."
