The bombing aeroplane is one of the most emotive subjects in aviation history. World War Two demonstrated the rapidly growing power of the bomber, and by the time of the advent of the jet age the bomber had become the ultimate in destructive power and the definitive deterrent of aggression. This two disc documentary looks at the development of two of the worlds greatest bombers. The Avro Vulcan, one of the most impressive flying machines ever to take to the skies, and the Panavia Tornado, one of the worlds most sophisticated aircraft.
