Avro Military 1910-63
Avro Military 1910–63; Aviation Industry Series, Vol 3
Please note: This is a new book edition of Aeroplane’s Avro Company Profile 1910–1996 (Military)
Founded in 1910, A. V. Roe and Company Limited built its first military aircraft two years later. By 1914, the company was literally flying when it designed the first of many iconic aircraft in the shape of the Avro 504, which sold in colossal numbers and was the key factor in keeping the company afloat after the end of World War One. With war looming again, new military designs gained momentum, although another huge success, in the shape of the Anson, was germinated from an Imperial Airways requirement. Success continued with the Blenheim, Manchester and Lancaster. The Lincoln and Shackleton were ordered in large numbers for the RAF, and the most famous jet-powered delta bomber of all, the Vulcan, kept the company at the forefront of Britain’s aviation industry. This new book edition of Aeroplane’s Avro Company Profile 1910–1963 (Military) is testimony to what Avro’s aircraft, and the men who flew them, achieved and shines a light on the great aircraft manufacturer that designed and built them.
