Avro Type 707 – A #twitterVforce Dedication Day

Dear follower,

On Saturday 10 November a day celebrating the prototype Avro 707 (1/3 scale Vulcan’s) was held on Twitter.

 Due to the huge interest and feedback received, I have decided to repost all of the images and pictures that were sent out over the course of 24 hours.

 

Some are images of various 707’s, some pictures from magazines of the day and a couple of Movement Cards.

 

5 prototypes were produced – Avro 707 (VX784) Avro 707A (WD280) & (WZ736) Avro 707B (VX790) Avro 707C (WZ744)

The maiden flight of the Avro 707 (VX784) took place on 4th September at Boscombe Down but crashed a month later at Blackbushe.

 3 prototypes remain to this day and are preserved at museums across the globe

Thank you for your continued support and always remember

Keep Calm and Support #twitterVforce
