    Victor Boys (Signed by Tony Blackman)

    Tony Blackman

    This book is signed by the author Tony Blackman.

    The Handley Page Victor was the third of the three V Bombers and the most long lasting, serving in the RAF until 1993, and still doing invaluable service in the first Iraq war. Moreover, in 1982 it was only the Victor tanker fleet based on Ascension Island that made possible the Vulcan Black Buck bombing of Port Stanley airfield and the long-range reconnaissance of Argentina by Nimrods. “Victor Boys” tells the story of all the great things that were achieved, recounted first hand by the operators themselves, aircrew and ground crew.
