Handley Page Victor B1
The Handley Page Victor was the longest serving V-Bomber with the RAF. It was conceived in 1945 and after much research and development the MK1 entered service in the late 1950's to become part of the UK's nuclear deterrent force.
The Victor could fly faster, higher and further than any comparable aircraft of that era. It boasted a unique crescent wing shape. It was extensively modified to become the RAF's main in-flight refuelling tanker and served in that role from 1965 until 1993.
