Vulcan bomber

The Avro Vulcan is a delta wing high-altitude strategic bomber, which was operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF) from 1956 until 1984. Of the three V bombers produced, the Vulcan was considered the most technically advanced and was powered by 4 Rolls-Royce Olympus engines which emit a distinctive "howl" when at approximately 90% power.
