When Britain Nuked the US – Twice, Are America’s Nuclear Defenses Credible?


The story of how British Vulcan bombers successfully penetrated US air defences in the early 1960s to conduct mock nuclear attacks on American cities. Dr. Mark Felton is a well-known British historian, the author of 22 non-fiction books, including bestsellers ‘Zero Night’ and ‘Castle of the Eagles’, both currently being developed into movies in Hollywood.

  1. What a great story on the Avro Vulcan, also on the internet is the bombing raid on the runway at the Falkland Islands in 1982,
    My story with the Vulcan was back in 1959 with the opening of Wellington airport and a Vulcan nearly came to grief when the port side landing gear hit soft ground before the runway, the landing gear was just hanging down limp as she powered away, the crew landing safely in Auckland 30 min later, not knowing if the gear would hold. It did.
    As a 10 year old on the side of a hill overlooking the strip, also watching Voodoos and Super Sabre’s streak across the sky, good days

    • I just checked my fathers scrap book(remember those) and apparently the Vulcan landed on a grass strip with little extra damage, and flew back to Britain a few months later.
