Vulcan "might-have-been"

Sorry if this is posted elsewhere, however;

This month's "Aeroplane" magazine (March) has an article on a quick sketch for an early version of the Vulcan - a sort of flying wing with wide oblong intake under the nose.

It also references a 3-D animation at :-

(It also lists Ian Bott's web site at )


As an aside I also noted that in their events diary that on 13th February there is a London Society of Air-Britain lecture entitled "The Secret World of Vickers Guided Missiles" by John Forbat, at the Victory Club, W2 - ref.

Flippin' heck, this looks brilliant! Thanks for the heads up, guys! ;)

I'm slightly confused, though - Ian Bott's site says March 2007, which must be wrong...
