This DVD collection takes a close look at four of the iconic aircraft that played major roles serving the Royal Air Force in the 20th century.

Includes:

Avro Vulcan V-Bomber:

This is the story of the Avro Vulcan V-Bomber, the world’s first large delta-wing strike aircraft,

from its conception in the early 1950’s as a strategic nuclear bomber through to its departure

from the Royal Air Force service, after its use in the Falklands Conflict in 1982.

Lancaster Bomber:

There is something delightfully nostalgic about the Lancaster Bomber that aircraft experts and

enthusiasts alike will always appreciate. Participating in some of the most daring and famous

missions of its day, the Lancaster marked a momentous period in British history, told in this

programmes.

Sunderland:

This documentary traces the story of the Short Sunderland Flying Boat, from its introduction to

service in the RAF in 1938 – it was to become one of the longest serving careers of any frontline

aircraft. The Sunderland was one of the very few types to remain in operational service

through the Second World War and the only RAF aircraft to perform front-line duties for the

whole of the Korean War. When it finally retired in 1959, it had served for a total of twenty one

years and had built up a reputation as a tough and reliable workhorse.

DeHavilland Mosquito:

The DeHavilland Mosquito was an outstanding warplane on every count, and if perhaps it was

over shadowed by the Spitfire as being the most popular aircraft from the war, it was certainly

the most popular with the pilots that flew them. This revered aircraft could carry phenomenal

loads over extremely long distances, performing feats out of all proportion to the specification

originally envisaged by its designers. This is the story of the Mosquito aircraft, from design to

production and how it saved Allied sympathisers in the Second World War.
