RECENT UPDATES:-        Avro Vulcan



Arguably a national treasure,

it as graced our skies for seventy glorious years,

today regarded as a British design icon which is celebrated and recognized around the world,

defender of the nation and a beacon of hope and defiance during our bleakest time in modern history

and yet we have no formal tribute to the designer of the Spitfire. WHY?


R. J. Mitchell CBE - Designer of the Spitfire
