Book Review: Vulcan 607: Fully Revised and Updated

 

I saw the Vulcan fly at the Cleveland Air Show in 1980. I will be forever impressed by the planes presence; the rest of the air show paled in comparison. This is a remarkable book about a mission that had so many opportunities to fail, but still succeeded. A 6,000 mile bombing mission, logistically doomed to fail, bad maps, protractors and slide rules, night time mission to destroy a runway at night. Well worth the read.
