Titles: Vickers Valiant No’s 1 and 2

The most conservative of the three British V-bombers, the Vickers Valiant first flew in 1951 and was the first V-bomber to enter service in 1955. Switching from its original high-altitude role to low-level penetration caused fatigue of the wing structure which resulted in their early retirement in 1965.

We offer two titles providing comprehensive technical coverage of this aircraft, containing the flight manuals for all variants of the Vickers Valiant and the aircraft servicing manual.  The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages. Each title is US$9.95.
