The Vulcan

Today’s wallpaper features the famous Avro Vulcan nuclear bomber, referred to with backhanded affection as the Tin Triangle. These aircraft were built during the 1960′s as part of the RAF’s V-bomber force, designed to carry nuclear weapons to targets in Russia. They would fly in below Russian radar, only a few hundred feet off the ground, at speeds close to Mach 1. Fortunately, they never carried out that mission, although their one use in combat set a world record: the Black Buck mission in the Falklands war had these planes fly 8000 miles to bomb Argentine-occupied port Stanley. This great image makes a perfect wallpaper for any fans of this incredible plane.
