Details

The Vickers Valiant was the first of the RAF 'V bombers' to be developed to carry Britain's nuclear deterrent, and was used to drop both atomic and hydrogen bombs in tests in the late 1950s. Drawing on the personal memories of pilots and crew, this record of the aircraft’s service history includes descriptions of its work as a strike bomber, its engagement during the Suez Crisis, and its reconnaissance and in-flight refuelling duties in the early 1960s.
