A digital painting, using classics in DAP plus Gimp, of the Vulcan Bomber from a public domain photograph from wikimedia commons.
I recall (in my younger days) the familiar sight (from Filton, Bristol) of a Vulcan Bomber (80 tons) taking off vertically using just one engine. The one engine was, in fact, a single Concord engine in development, with enough power to fly the Vulcan like a jet fighter.
The Avro Vulcan is a jet-powered delta wing strategic bomber, which was operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF) from 1956 until 1984. The first production, B.1 type, had flown in February 1955.

I have opened a shop with CafePress to sell some of my designs on clothing, iPhone & laptop cases, jewellery and lots more:

    Unusual, but Ok Dennis. – Ted

  • Thank you Ted – I remember this plane very well and the awesome trail of black smoke that it left behind. The first time that I saw it I thought that there was something wrong with the engines :)
