Format: Paperback
This volume looks at the story of the Victor from the immediate post-war research studies through development and deployment, and several career changes, to its position as one of the (admittedly many) iconic RAF aircraft preserved today. There are many monochrome and some colour photographs supporting the excellent text, which is informative and readable, despite the amount of technical information included.

The Author's last word -
"The last Victor flight took place on 30th November 1993, and today two Victors remain in running condition at Bruntingthorpe and Elvington. The Victor's existence spanned 40 years from first prototype flight to final sortie. The crescent-winged Victor was years ahead of its time and it flew smoothly at altitude like a knife through butter. The Victor provided Britain with its highest flying and largest bomb-carrying nuclear warplane. It was a superb strategic reconnaissance asset, and in the twilight of its career the Victor did sterling service as an airborne tanker. The Victor was the last of the V-bombers to enter service and the last to retire 40 years later. Set against any criteria, that was a remarkable achievement for a remarkably flexible aeroplane. And if you look at the futuristic stealth shapes now being bandied about, some of them bear a remarkable similarity to the Handley page Victor.

A Christmas present to complete the V-bombers collection for my partner. He raves about the content and readability of these Osprey books and is delighted with it.

Can only repeat what I said about the companion volumes on the Valiant and the Vulcan. Excellent i would have preferred all the three as one volume though.
