Avro's iconic Vulcan Bomber is one of the most recognisable of the RAF's Cold War aircraft. A mainstay of the V-Force, the Vulcan seemed to leap from Avro's Manchester home and seem light years ahead of the Lancaster and Shackleton that preceded it. Yet, as Vulcan to the Sky trustee Stephen Liddle explains to Boney, the journey to the 'Tin Triangle' can be traced pre-war and the experiences had with the Manchester and Lancaster that would put Avro in good stead to take the lead into the Jet Age.
