On Christmas Eve 1952, the futuristic Handley Page Victor, the third of Britain’s V-Force nuclear deterrent aircraft, soared into the air for the first time. Its innovative crescent-shaped wing allowed the Victor to cruise close to the speed of sound and to break through the sound barrier in a shallow dive, making it the fastest large aircraft until Concorde. The first Victors were delivered to RAF Gaydon, now home to the Heritage Motor Centre, Jaguar Land Rover and Aston Martin, in 1957 and the type remained in service until October 1993, an incredible 41 years supporting the defence of the United Kingdom and its NATO allies.
