Specification required a bomber with a top speed of 500 knots. (930 km/h), an operating ceiling of 50,000 ft (15,000 m), a range of 3,000 nautical miles. (5,500 km) and a bomb load of 10,000 lb (4,500 kg). It also held the distinction as the first fly-by-wire. Design work also began at Vickers.
All three designs were approved - the Valiant. Avro began scale prototype testing in 1948 with the single-seater Type 707, and despite the crash of the first prototype on September 30, 1949 work continued. The first full-scale prototype aircraft, the Type 698, was completed in August 1952 and made its maiden flight on August 31. The Vulcan name was not chosen until 1953.In September 1956, the RAF received its first Vulcan B. 1, XA897, which immediately went on a fly-the-flag mission to New Zealand. On October 1, while approaching London Airport to complete the tour, XA897 crashed short of the runway in bad weather conditions. 2 variant was first tested in 1957 and entered service in 1960. It had a larger wing and better performance than the B1 and had a distinctive kink in its delta wing to reduce turbulence. In all, 134 Vulcans were produced 45 B. 2, the last being delivered to the RAF in January 1965. The last operational Vulcan squadron was disbanded in March 1984. As part of Britain's independent nuclear deterrent the Vulcan initially carried Britain's first nuclear weapon, the Blue Danube gravity bomb. The bomb load was gradually updated to Yellow Sun.

To bomb the occupied airfield there with conventional bombs as Operation Black Buck. By this date the number of Victors.Was extremely limited, so some Vulcan aircraft were adapted in just fifty days to fulfill that role during the conflict. Five Vulcans were chosen for the operation, their bomb bays were modified, the fuel systems replaced and the electronics updated. The first bombing mission was on April 30.
And there were five further bombing missions. At the time these missions held the record for the World's longest distance raids. The Vulcan was the first jet powered bomber to use delta wings. The Vulcan was used as test-beds for the Concorde. A Vulcan was featured in the James Bond.
