Many of us haven’t seen a Vulcan aircraft before. I have seen one once and belive me guys, this thing it’s incredible. It has all the particularities of an incredible machine: power, a conventional bombing role and it makes your heart jumps out of your chest everytime it passes above you. 

The Vulcan is one of the world’s aircrafts that  is impressive at first sight. If you don’t belive it, let’s take you through a bit of its history and facts:

The  Vulcan is a delta wing subsonic jet bomber that was operated by the Royal Air Force from 1953 until 1984. Design work began at A. V.
